Biden Puts Green Activists Over Economy In LNG Export Ban

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to the Biden administration’s announcement today it is banning new LNG exports:
“President Biden is putting green activists over the economy by banning new LNG exports. Natural gas production and exports account for countless high-paying jobs and economic development in parts of the country that need it the most. The LNG ban actually risks increasing energy prices long-term because it depresses investment in this vital sector. Ironically, LNG exports are good for the environment because they displace dirtier sources of fuel such as coal. Stopping the development of this bridge fuel will only increase global emissions. The LNG ban exposes Democrats’ true goal: to consolidate their power and control over the economy.”
