Love this framing.
Fracking? For whom?
U.S. exports of natural gas would come at huge risks to our environment
By BRUCE FERGUSON, Commentary
Finally consider this: If the U.S. does export shale gas, it will be supplying countries like France that have already banned fracking because it’s too dangerous.
Is the U.S. on its way to becoming an energy extraction colony for other nations?
Are we the new Third World?
Of course I would love the framing. I’ve used it. Are you sacrificed to shale so U.S. can become largest exporter of LNG?
The Big Gas Mafia is creating extraction zones all across the US where American citizens’ health, safety and well-being are sacrificed to extract shale gas and oil. Now the US is positioning to become the largest exporter of LNG, Liquified Natural Gas.

Natural Gas Pipelines to Expand U.S. Supply Glut: Energy Markets
So, royalty owners have to bet it all on LNG export.
Range announces Marcellus pipeline, export deals
Wow! In other words: we need to export to jack the prices up at home.
“Kenneth Medlock, a professor of energy and resource economics at Rice University in Houston, said bountiful U.S. production of ethane, propane and butane—which are all types of natural gas—is creating a glut in markets and depressing prices. The same thing has happened with so-called “dry” natural gas.
“The only way to get out of it is the export market,” Medlock said.”
This whole scam is being promoted by the current administration in Washington DC. and the alternative will even be worse. We (the peasants) are being ruined by our gubment.
Don’t see us as “peasants.” That implies we have no power whatsoever. We have power but Americans are complacent and we often allow others to get the details for us.
