Lift the Export Ban, Cook the Climate


Lift the Export Ban, Cook the Climate

David Turnbull

On Tuesday, our organization released a new briefing, entitled "Lift the Ban, Cook the Climate: Why Eliminating the Crude Export Ban Fails the Climate Test," detailing why Congress and the President should stand up to current efforts by the oil industry to eliminate the ban on crude oil exports.


The irony is that the best use of oil/gas is probably in the production of insulating materials that would facilitate a significant reduction in the use of fossil fuels…


Soon, there will be no one left to blame.

Ever since the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) was formed in 1985 and took control of the Party’s agenda, the Democrats waste no time adopting what are regarded as extreme GOP talking points.

Recall the GOP 2008 campaign mantra “Drill, Baby, Drill !” soon found itself firmly ensconced in Obama’s agenda.

You can bet that whatever extreme ideas Paul Ryan and his ilk contrive will soon be embedded in the Democratic Party’s agenda.
