Managing climate risk

Posted: March 31, 2014 by Ken Cohen

All energy sources, including carbon-based fuels, are necessary to meet future global energy demand growth as society manages climate change risks.

What makes China’s rare-earth metals protectionism any different from what the Obama administration is doing on liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports?

If the administration truly wants to make “good policy decisions” when it comes to LNG exports, the pathway forward is remarkably clear.

The limited window of opportunity for U.S. natural gas producers to help serve the needs of customers around the world is closing fast.

Further confirmation of the oil and natural gas industry’s contribution to American energy abundance can be found in the March 12 “This Week in Petroleum” from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
