Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

With Congress out for the August recess, this week’s major energy-related announcements came from the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

On Wednesday, the Energy Department approved a third liquefied natural gas export terminal. Required to review all facilities designed to export to non-free trade agreement countries by the Natural Gas Act, the agency found the Louisianan Lake Charles Exports LLC facility aligns itself with the public interest. In reviewing the economic, energy, and environmental impacts of the facility, the agency received approximately 200,000 public comments.
