Look before the LNG leap

This whitepaper, published by the Sierra Club, goes after the question why policymakers and the public need fair disclosure before exports of fracked gas start. Among others, they deplore that “Exporting major amounts of liquefied natural gas means lots of new fracking: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s own Energy Information Agency has made that clear in a report this January. And more fracking means more risks for Americans, especially because of all the legal loopholes the industry has secured: DOE’s own Natural Gas Subcommittee, a collection of top experts, has made that clear, too, in its own reports. So why, despite the advice of its own experts, is DOE refusing even to consider the impacts of all that fracking before it greenlights exports?”
