Keystone XL battle plan may not fit enviros' fight against LNG exports

Environmentalists using a Keystone XL template to battle natural gas export terminals can draw a powerful parallel between the infrastructure projects -- both would speed up the development of vast fossil fuel pools -- but face longer odds against a new, harder target in the shale industry. A KXL-inspired strategy against liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plans emerged last week in a letter to President Obama signed by 16 green groups and spearheaded by two of the oil sands crude pipeline's most active foes. The activists urged Obama to help leave the bulk of global fossil fuels in the ground by cutting off LNG exports, a rationale all but identical to that used in the anti-KXL campaign by climate activists and liberal Democrats.
