How can our nation’s energy revolution continue to stay strong? Writing in The National Interest, James Jay Carafano of the Heritage Foundation has an idea:
Increasing American production and export of energy is a win-win-win proposition. It would enhance our national security, make international energy markets more free, and address environmental issues realistically. The next president should lead the campaign for an American energy export agenda. In the meantime, the present Congress can do much to prepare for the march.
Check out the entire piece by Carafano to see why energy exports should be a key part of U.S. energy policy. Unfortunately, antiquated laws and regulations are holding us back.
Now more than ever, American energy producers need access to world markets. It will benefit consumers, producers, workers, and our economy. It’s time to lift the energy export restrictions and let America become a global energy superpower.
