Well, here we go again…being fed a line of BS from the oil & gas industry and the government. The recent greatly heralded answer to relieving dependence on imported foreign oil…great new natural gas reserves found here in PA, seems is not the answer if more money is to be made for “Americans” by exporting those natural gas reserves to other countries. Now just which “Americans” are we talking about?

How much foreign oil still needs to be imported for every liquefied gallon of natural gas that is exported? Funny that both sides of the import/export of fuel is owned by a certain group of “Americans” who just happen to have a lot of influence with DC and the people who issue the reports like the one posted at the beginning of this entry. Why isn’t there a push to convert energy usage that relies on imported oil into that of natural gas? Or does the manufacturing plants of China need our natural gas to stay running even more cheaply to further justify keeping our jobs over there? This is just another example of how globalization only works when American middle-class workers have to foot the bill so a certain few “Americans” can reap the rewards.

So much for securing independence from foreign oil with domestic natural gas. Just goes to show that patriotism is secondary to profit for corporate-minded Americans. Now go ahead and send more militaryto be killed in the Mideast for oil companies who are exploiting our loved ones overseas while raping our natural resources at home to increase their wealth.

They will stock pile it & sell it back to us at a higher price?
