The report published by the European NGO Transport and Environment, states that the much debated use of LNG has fare worse long term consequences for the global climate than conventional use of marine fuel, diesel and petrol than what has been known previously.

According to UN, for the climate, 1kilo Methane is 34 times worse than 1 kilo CO2 over the duration of a 100 year period . The report therefore argues that this places LNG in the same class as conventional fuel and should therefore also be taxed at the same rate as diesel, petrol and marine fuel.
