    DOE Release Report on LNG Exports

    Yahoo! won't let me post it, but it is a very positive report: Excerpts:

    In all of these cases, benefits that come from export expansion more than outweigh the
    losses from reduced capital and wage income to U.S. consumers, and hence LNG exports
    have net economic benefits in spite of higher domestic natural gas prices.

    ...allowing exports of LNG would cause no change in natural
    gas prices and do no harm to the overall economy.

    LNG exports are not likely to affect the overall level of employment in the U.S. There will
    be some shifts in the number of workers across industries, with those industries associated
    with natural gas production and exports attracting workers away from other industries. In
    no scenario is the shift in employment out of any industry projected to be larger than normal
    rates of turnover of employees in those industries.
