"How Hillary Clinton's State Department sold fracking to the world."

Guardian: “A trove of secret documents details the US government’s global push for shale gas, reports Mother Jones. ….Clinton, who was sworn in as secretary of state in early 2009, believed that shale gas could help rewrite global energy politics.”
“This is a moment of profound change,” she later told a crowd at Georgetown University. “Countries that used to depend on others for their energy are now producers. How will this shape world events? Who will benefit, and who will not? … The answers to these questions are being written right now, and we intend to play a major role.” Clinton tapped a lawyer named David Goldwyn as her special envoy for international energy affairs; his chargewas “to elevate energy diplomacy as a key function of US foreign policy.”
Goldwyn had a long history of promoting drilling overseas—both as a Department of Energy official under Bill Clinton and as a representative of the oil industry. From 2005 to 2009 he directed the US-Libya Business Association, an organisation funded primarily by US oil companies—including Chevron, Exxon Mobil, and Marathon—clamouring to tap Libya’s abundant supply.”
