bruh.. Nig is light years behind when it comes to tech... but if they're sensible enough to invest in their natural gas, Since thats the next source of energy other than nuclear energy, And considering the fact that we have one of the largest gas reserve lying fallow and unutilized below the soil, then and only then we could say, we are getting it right. Until then....
