In the United States, coal-fired power plants emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases. Many policymakers suggest using more natural gas, a lower carbon source. A recent report from the Congressional Research Service indicates that underutilized natural gas plants have the potential to displace some coal plants. Stan Kaplan, the author of the report, joins an expert panel to look at the possibilities and questions raised by the idea of coal displacement, including possible costs, supply issues, the feasibility of other alternatives, and the environmental implications.
