The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and health-care editor/analyst David Williamson discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac discusses 3M, the most recent entrant into the natural gas arena.
