The burner tip on your gas stove is the endpoint of a complex system of gas delivery that starts at a wellhead in a gas field out West and runs under the streets of your town to your home. Unfortunately, the system has some inherent problems that range from climate effects to health problems and explosion risks. Listen to an expert discuss some of the problems with our gas infrastructure.
The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
