Trump administration eyes military to boost blocked gas, coal exports in West

Pictured: Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke

ㅤ"Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Monday told the Associated Press he wants to use military bases in Alaska and other Pacific states as hubs for exporting U.S. fuel, which is in high demand abroad but remains constrained by West Coast Democratic governors who have blocked new export terminals on environmental grounds. The proposal — the details of which remain murky — would mark a radical change for U.S. energy policy and could see military facilities for the first time used directly to ship fuel overseas.
ㅤ’I respect the state of Washington and Oregon and California,’ Mr. Zinke said. But ‘it’s in our interest for national security and our allies to make sure that they have access to affordable energy commodities.’"

ㅤô¿ô …I assume this plan has been well thought out.
