Trump administration could use military bases to export coal, gas

Zinke said the strategy is being considered as a way to thwart opposition by California, Oregon and Washington leaders to allowing export terminals in their states to sell coal or gas to Asia.

…Zinke said that may involve using “some of our naval facilities, some of our federal facilities on the West Coast.”

In his AP interview, Zinke only mentioned one possible facility for natural gas exports: the Adak Naval Air Facility in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, which closed in 1997.

…They are also working on a plan to keep uneconomical coal and nuclear power plants open, citing national security as the justification.

Subverting the rule of law and co-opting the military to prop up failing industries?  Not even pretending the Trump WH isn’t bought and paid for anymore….
