Science pushed aside in boosting US oil, gas exports

Exporting our newly discovered gas and oil reserves could enable us to foster renewable energy domestically to stem climate change, according to Tom Keane in “The energy glut” (Op-ed, Dec. 2). I’m perplexed: Is there an encapsulated atmosphere over the United States that prevents the emissions from these exported fossil fuels from affecting us?

When one pushes science aside, I suppose anything is possible.
