Let Biden’s LNG pause stand!

I’m writing as a constituent and someone who’s deeply worried about the climate crisis to say that Congressional investigations into President Biden's pause on new Liquefied Natural Gas export permits are unnecessary and ill-informed. The facts are clear that this is a temporary pause on new LNG permits - it will not affect existing exports or new LNG export terminals that are already working or under construction. Second, only Department of Energy permits, and only those applying to LNG exports, will be covered by the pause. Our allies in Europe and beyond will not face shortages or disruptions in their fuel supplies as a result. Climate scientists and energy economists are clear: LNG is already bad for the climate, and is already diving up prices for US consumers, at a time when our allies in Europe are already reducing demand for fossil fuels. The LNG pause is a smart decision by President Biden, and Congress should focus its effort on making it permanent, and accelerating the transition to clean, renewable energy at home and abroad. Thanks.
