This comprehensive article provides a detailed comparison of various energy sources, including coal-bed methane (CBM), oil, coal, shale gas, and conventional gas. The author evaluates these sources based on 12 parameters, including environmental and social impacts. CBM emerges as a favorable option with lower impacts, followed by shale gas, conventional gas, and oil. Coal, on the other hand, shows the highest negative impact on both the environment and society. The study emphasizes the growing significance of natural gas, particularly CBM and conventional gas, as relatively cleaner and socially responsible energy alternatives in the evolving global energy landscape.
