King expresses support for natural gas pipeline, opposition to LNG exports — The Free Press, Rockland, ME

Last Friday, Senator Angus King made a stop at the Island Institute in Rockland to discuss energy sustainability and economic development. King, who is a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said his top three priorities are expanding natural gas pipeline into New England, blocking natural gas exports and supporting renewable energy.

In a written statement Congressman Poliquin made a similar argument but in support of the bill, arguing that increasing LNG exports will help America become more energy independent and will "create untold thousands of new American jobs while protecting our natural environment." [Colored & bold emphasis added.]

Webmaster's comment: Finally, a Maine US Senator has taken a stand against LNG! Hats off to Sen. King! 

On the other hand, Maine's freshman US Representative Bruce Poliquin supports LNG exports, claiming that selling off America's natural gas supply somehow would make the US energy independent! Rep. Poliquin believes in eating one's cake, and having it, too — a mutually-exclusive condition that even school children know is impossible. More natural gas drilling (and related methane emissions) would also mean more environmental damage — not less. Rep. Poliquin seems severely logic-challenged on this issue.
