The Sierra Club filed a Freedom of Information Act request January 22 with the Department of Energy to determine how the agency chose NERA Economic Consulting to conduct its analysis of the economic impacts of liquid natural gas exports. The Sierra Club is critical of the organization’s findings. The agency received many comments January 24 both in support of and in opposition to exporting natural gas to overseas markets, including one supportive letter led by Ohio Representatives Bill Johnson (R) and Tim Ryan (D) and signed by 108 of their colleagues; DOE will accept reply comments until February 25.
