Professor Aseem Prakash in Forbes, "Presidential Elections And Biden’s Gas Export Pause"

Submitted by Albert Sub Yun on February 6, 2024 - 10:10am

Professor Aseem Prakash and Professor Nives Dolšak work together to write about the pause President Joe Biden put on gas exports in America.

"In 2014, the United States barely exported any liquified natural gas (LNG). By 2022, it had emerged as the world’s top gas exporter. With encouragement from the Biden Administration, it continues to build LNG terminals to double its export capacity by 2027.

Yet, on January 26, 2024, the Biden administration announced a “pause” in permitting new LNG exports. Why this reversal and why now? In our assessment, this probably reflects Biden’s desire to consolidate climate voters behind him in the November Presidential elections."
