Critics of LNG Exports Don't Understand the World
Energy Tribune, Energy Tribune
In recent weeks, there has been a growing debate over whether to allow American liquid natural gas (LNG) to be exported to the global market. Last week, Dow Chemical, ALCOA and others launched a new campaign, dubbed America’s Energy Advantage, to fight the export of liquid natural gas (LNG) in an attempt to artificially suppress domestic natural gas prices for their own benefit. Unfortunately, what’s good for these few companies is not good for the U.S. economy. Ultimately, LNG exports benefit the entire U.S. economy, and promote economic growth globally.
