East Med Gas Pipeline

Postby Guy M » Mon Dec 30, 2019 12:33 pm

I guess I am not the only one sent this link today, with a comment that the East Med Gas Pipeline will lead to a rise in property prices on Crete. https://hellasjournal.com/2019/12/ameri ... president/

Maybe, but there are a number of similar gas pipeline projects all over Europe, and many of them are talked about for years and never materialise.

That kind of depends. Gas emits less CO2 than oil which emits less than coal. Gas is widely recognised as a transition fuel given the intermittency of renewable alternatives and the lack of battery technology to store energy as we move to a decarbonised economy. Thereafter, who knows? Natural gas’ continued use would require effective carbon capture and storage which is another technology not yet fully developed.

This would have a much bigger impact (good or bad) on Crete than the East Med pipeline if it happens.
