    Mark W Menezes, the US undersecretary of energy, bestowed a peculiar honorific on our continent’s natural resources, dubbing it “freedom gas” in a release touting the DoE’s approval of increased exports of natural gas produced by a Freeport LNG terminal off the coast of Texas.

    “Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy,” said Menezes.

    “With the US in another year of record-setting natural gas production, I am pleased that the Department of Energy is doing what it can to promote an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of US freedom to be exported to the world,” said Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg, who signed the export order.

      I think they are saying gas is cleaner than coal. Not freedom for plants, animals and our health.

      Saskatchewan was a big province for gas, also worst quality of air pollution in Canada. Will we ever be free from greed?

        Not until we give up comfortable housing, cars, computers, TV's, hot water, ranges, cell phones, airplanes, trains, metal, and all the rest of what takes energy.

        Our world is energy dependent; without massive quantities of it billions will simply die.

          Wow!!! That Gold for Billionaires from those toxic poisoned, flaming gasholes . Sure looks sooo ...gooood and attractive.
          Rather than our most valued existing health and rapidly suffering and dying Planet. 

          Most of the natural alternatives products will either be adapted to the existing energy products or replace a new systems,- it will be done. They will be more efficient and above all, cleaner to operate and benefit and profit everyone. It might hurt those extreme greedy profiteering, greesy , parisite old fat farts, who don't care if you or me live or die.

          We have the technology now to produce mass quantities of clean energy, but the greedy petroleum, coal, etc. industries' lobbies, like those of big pharma, are too strong.

          But we will always need hot water. My grandparents heated theirs on their wood stove. Until we got running water and natural gas when I was 9, my parents heated our hot water on a kerosene stove. But both methods take carbon-based energy even if the world reverted to the old ways. New clean energy must prevail. We have technology for solar and wind energy right now. Also electric cars, all of which are being blocked by the oil, gas and coal industries.

            Yes, at this point it all takes fossil fuels.  Whether to run the mining equipment digging out Lithium to make batteries or to actually heat the water.

            Hard to see electric cars being blocked by the oil, gas and coal industries with the current proliferation of them; every manufacturer has them now, in at least an electric/gas hybrid and the number is increasing rapidly.  I have driven a hybrid now for nearly a decade, and a hybrid rather than total electric only because in my area long trips are frequent with no charging stations.

            What we need, and need desperately, is economic, reliable fusion power.  Not solar or wind that goes away and requires massive (and unavailable) storage facilities.

    "Freedom Gas" would be a great name for a hippie/jam band ala Blues Traveler or Phish.

    Just sayin'.

      I remember the good old days, we teens circle around each other and had a lighting farts contest.

      Those were the times of freedom of Gas. We had a gas doing it too. Put that in their Add.
