Shepstone Management Company, Inc.
Natural gas news from a hundred years ago offers great perspective for discussing one of the cleanest sources of energy available then and still today.
I thought it might be fun and illuminating to look back 100 years ago at what was happening with natural gas. It is eye opening, given all we’ve learned over the last century. There is, indeed, little new under the sun, as our stories repeatedly demonstrate. Read our 100-year old news items on the subjects of radiant heat, declining natural gas reserves and new towns getting natural gas.
A Wonderful Invention!
Indeed it was!
Innovation was, and remains, the watchword for natural gas.
Yet, Pessimism Reigned in Some Quarters!
No matter how good things are there are always those will see things getting ever worse!
Just think of what has happened since with natural gas!
Meanwhile, Another Town Celebrates the Prospect of Gas Coming!
While some were whining, others were rejoicing:
Human nature never fails to disappoint as each of us looks at things so different. as the history of natural gas reveals, only time reveals the truth.
