Obama promoting Canada with LNG stall tactics. Hello Japan!

While PM Shinzo Abe is meeting in Canada about expanding LNG exports to Japan, 19 applications to export LNG from the US are stalled in the approval pipeline.  Obama has only okayed 4 since he came to power.   By contrast, no one in Canada has to ask mother permission to sell their liquefied natural gas to people overseas.   At least ten nations are begging for more LNG trade to cut their energy costs and reduce their dependency on countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia.   (Christy Clark of BC gets some kudos points at the first link for going to Washington with a sales order book.)
