The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the American Chemistry Council and the Sierra Club each have voiced opposition to increased U.S. gas exports, citing negative effects on the domestic economy and the environment. The article quoted Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune as stating “We don’t often have joint Christmas parties with these folks, but on this issue we have a common interest.”

In related news, Forbes reported yesterday that Andrew Liveris, chief executive of Dow Chemical, urged U.S. policymakers to limit LNG exports in order to allow domestic manufacturing companies to benefit from the low prices of natural gas.

[Update: Following publication of this post, the American Chemistry Council clarified its position on LNG exports, stating that the organization does not support a ban on the export of U.S. natural gas as LNG.  The Wall Street Journal has issued a correction to its previous story.]
