In a news release this week from the Department of Energy (DoE), Mark W Menezes, the US undersecretary of energy, called one of the country’s most important natural resources “freedom gas” while bragging about the DoE’s approval of increased exports of natural gas produced by a Freeport LNG terminal off the coast of Texas.
“Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy,” he said.
He also added that “With the US in another year of record-setting natural gas production, I am pleased that the Department of Energy is doing what it can to promote an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of US freedom to be exported to the world,”
I thought freedom gas is what comes out of my ass after eating a massive burrito?! It does have a similar detrimental effect on people’s health.
