The U.S. briefly became the world’s No. 1 oil exporter as record shale production found its way to global customers, and there are prospects for more. Surging output from shale helped America ship almost 9 million barrels a day of crude and oil products in June, surpassing Saudi Arabia, the International Energy Agency said in a report, citing gross export figures.
Throwing facts to the wind, Sanders’ and Warren’s calls to ban fracking completely ignore the benefits of the shale revolution and its importance to the United States – namely: job growth, energy security, lower fuel costs, less reliance on foreign imports, increased stabilization of global energy markets, and, yes, climate progress.
Environmental interest in Georgetown’s big push to generate all of its electricity from wind and solar power was amplified by three factors: the town and its mayor were nominally Republican; Georgetown is in an oil- and natural gas-rich state; and that state is deep-red Texas.
