Newly obtained emails show Hillary Clinton promoted fracking in foreign nations
The left does not care about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the possibility that she broke the law and Bernie Sanders even claimed he was sick and tired of hearing about her emails. But according to this story we might have found an email issue the left will be interested in.
Back during one of the debates Bernie Sanders, who opposes fracking, tried to call out Hillary Clinton on her convoluted stance on fracking. The former Secretary of State’s last position on fracking was that she opposed it where the people opposed it and supported it where the people supported it–or something like that because she also went on to say “we have to have a system in place that prevents further fracking.” She is trying to have it both ways in an attempt to cover up her previous support for the procedure.
However newly obtained emails show that Hillary Clinton was actively promoting fracking in foreign nations during her tenure as Secretary of State:
emails obtained by The Intercept from the Department of State reveal new details of behind-the-scenes efforts by Clinton and her close aides to export American-style hydraulic fracturing — the horizontal drilling technique best known as fracking — to countries all over the world.
Far from challenging fossil fuel companies, the emails obtained by The Intercept show that State Department officials worked closely with private sector oil and gas companies, pressed other agencies within the Obama administration to commit federal government resources including technical assistance for locating shale reserves, and distributed agreements with partner nations pledging to help secure investments for new fracking projects.
This should be troubling news to our friends on the left which mostly, if not wholly, has swallowed the talking points that fracking is bad for the environment and in addition causes earthquakes. If fracking is bad for the environment in the United States it stands to reason it is also bad for the environment when it is conducted in foreign nations as well and yet Hillary Clinton was actively pursuing it in other nations. Maybe this is why she did not want to release her emails…
This is another example of the hypocrisy of the elected left in this country in regards to global warming: they continue to try to impose strict cap and trade legislation in the United States while granting exemptions from United Nations environmental treaties to some of the largest polluting countries and in my opinion this calls into question the whole agenda of the global warming agenda…
