Should U.S. export Fracking to China?
With an administration claiming to be the “environmental” leader in America, it is a difficult journey to follow; one that ends in fracking as the safe, green, nature and people friendly way to augment fuel production.
Should we be exporting this and all of it’s unknown/unproven ramifications abroad?
U.S. – China Advance Fracking and Nuclear Cooperation
The U.S. and China during the Sixth Round of the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) July 9-10, 2014, in Beijing, have agreed to further cooperation in a multitude of environmental, as well as military, diplomatic, space, maritime and other areas of common interest.
Agreements on the “Exchange and Cooperation in Unconventional Oil and Gas Exploration and Development” along with a planned “Shale Gas Study Tour“ seem to indicate that the United States is keen to promote “fracking” as a safe and exportable technology for the benefit of the Chinese people.
With many nations (Australia, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland) opposing “Nuclear Fission” as a safe and viable power generation source, the U.S. and China have agreed to promote its use and development within the two countries.
