Dominion Energy Company has won its suit against The Sierra Club, leaving it free to pursue exporting natural gas from its existing Calvert County, Md., liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant.

Fear of fracking

The recent explosion of fracking technology has produced a glut of natural gas in the U.S., leading some energy companies to look for more markets overseas.

At one time, environmentalists encouraged the switch from coal to natural gas for power plant fuel, because the carbon dioxide emissions are significantly lower.

More recently, though, the Sierra Club has opposed natural gas fracking, believing it causes drinking water pollution and environmental damage.

Eco-socialist organizations like the Sierra Club have no use for fossil fuels of any kind. They only used natural gas and its supporters as ponds to destroy the coal industry. Now that this is well on the way to succeeding, they have no use for natural gas.

The Sierra Club needs to change its name. What does a LNG plant in Maryland have to do with the Sierra Nevada mountains?

All exported fuels need to have a very heavy tax. Let the countries buying it get us out of debt.

That is good the Dominion has won their suit. With the current price of Natural Gas, Dominion can sell it in Europe for 4 to 5 time more that in the US. The other thing is much of the gas today is be flared off because they don't have the space to store it.

Fracking is here to stay so we might as well make the most of it with more jobs, cheaper energy, more tax revenue, and an improvement in the trade balance.

While CNG prices might go up a bit, the US trade balance will improve bringing earned revenues into the country.

LNG is the future... Oil rich countries flair the stuff off rather than Sep it. This should stop and all LNG should be liquefied and sold
