Why are we exporting natural gas? [Letter]

July 28, 2014

After years of hearing that the U.S. is too dependent on foreign oil, and that our reliance on fossil fuels is ultimately unsustainable anyway, why are we now developing ways to export natural gas ("A key win for LNG facility," July 24)?

Do we truly intend to further despoil our natural resources through questionable fracking practices in order to ship fuel overseas? Really?
