“In the Dakotas, everyday the natural gas from 1,500 wells is flared off because we have too much of it. Now what does 1,500 wells mean? That’s enough energy heat a million homes. Like the ice cream company, our motto on LNG should be: We eat all we can, and we sell the rest. Where should we sell it? India.” – Rep. Ted Poe (R-Tx)

“The sooner we can help India convert from coal to natural gas, we can help them to reduce their green house gas emissions.” – Dr. Michael Canes, Distinguished Fellow at Logistics Management Institute

“It is time to remove bureaucratic roadblocks and take the Department of Energy out of the approval process for natural gas exports. Unnecessary federal red tape is the only thing standing in the way of the United States exporting natural gas. Exporting natural gas would grow our economy and create thousands of new jobs. Washington should be supporting, not stonewalling, the development and exportation of this valuable resource. ”- Congressman Ted Poe, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade.

President Obama defending a federal reserve policy that would boost American exports to Asia:

“I will say that the Fed’s mandate, my mandate, is to grow our economy,” Obama said at a press conference yesterday in Delhi, India. “And the worst thing that could happen to the world economy, not ours — not just ours, but the entire world’s economy — is if we end up being stuck with no growth or very limited growth.” (http://www.nytimes.com/cwire/2010/11/09/09climatewire-obama-and-ge-make-clean-tech-export-case-to-19304.html)

“The United States has a unique opening to provide its allies with a steady, reliable source of energy.

I encourage Secretary Kerry to reinforce the importance of this trade relationship between our governments. It continues to be in the best interest of both countries.”Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D., (R-South Louisiana)
