Department Of Energy Press Release Rebrands Fossil Fuels As “Freedom Gas” And “Molecules Of Freedom”

USA Today reports:

Move over, freedom fries. Freedom gas is here. On Tuesday, the Department of Energy posted a press release about liquid natural gas exports, referring to natural gas as “freedom gas” and “molecules of U.S. freedom.”

The release was about the Department of Energy’s authorization of increased exports of natural gas from a terminal located off the coast of Texas. The wording is not entirely new for the department.

According to Euractiv, earlier in May, when signing export orders for natural gas to Europe, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said that “the United States is again delivering a form of freedom to the European continent. And rather than in the form of young American soldiers, it’s in the form of liquefied natural gas.”
