I'm so GLAD they are destroying the water supply with Fracking so they can EXPORT LNG

Earlier today I posted in LBN how the US has become a NET EXPORTER of Oil and that Refined Product exports are now greater then Crude Oil Imports.

But what you didn't know - ALL this extra Natural Gas - and you thought it was going to fuel power plants - is now being prepared for shipment overseas. Welcome to Bush's America, a country so bankrupted we no longer need gasoline to drive to work (because we don't have jobs) a country where GrandMa can sit in the dark and freeze to death because she can't afford to heat her home.

Louisiana terminal approved for liquefied natural gas exports
The Associated Press

A liquefied natural gas terminal in Louisiana has been approved to export natural gas.

Federal Energy Department records show that Lake Charles Exports LLC was granted authority on July 22 to export domestic natural gas from its Lake Charles terminal to countries that the U.S. has free trade agreements for gas. The Energy Department is still considering whether to allow exports to countries not covered by the pacts.

Lake Charles Exports LLC is a subsidiary of Houston-based Southern Union Co., a natural gas pipeline company, and BG Group, a Great Britain-based natural gas company.

The Energy Department decision said Lake Charles Exports could export up to 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day for 25 years. The terminal was authorized for imported LNG in the late 1970s and construction was completed in 1981. According to the agency document, the company plans to modify the terminal to handle exports.


This is what your Corporations think of the Working Class Citizens of this country - Fuck You - We'll ship your jobs Overseas, Screw You - We'll pollute your water and beaches with impunity, Go to Hell Working Class Citizens - We'll export your Natural Resources until you are poorer then a 3rd World Banana Republic
