Fracking is a toxic threat to American communities and the climate. Allowing fracked-gas exports would dramatically increase the scale of and demand for fracking in the United States by giving the fossil fuel industry access to huge foreign markets. Stand up to the fossil fuel industry and deny all applications to export natural gas. It is questionable whether we should even be using hydrofracking for domestic use; the risk to groundwater is real. That makes it certain to me, and to many others to whom I have spoken, that there should be ABSOLUTELY no overseas sales.
