Hillary Clinton’s Energy Initiative Pressed Countries to Embrace Fracking, New Emails Reveal

Back in April, just before the New York primary, Hillary Clinton’s campaign aired a commercial on upstate television stations touting her work as secretary of state forcing “China, India, some of the world’s worst polluters” to make “real change.” She promised to “stand firm with New Yorkers opposing fracking, giving communities the right to say ‘no.'”

The television spot, which was not announced and does not appear on the official campaign YouTube page with most of Clinton’s other ads, implied a history of opposition to fracking, here and abroad. But emails obtained by The Intercept from the Department of State reveal new details of behind-the-scenes efforts by Clinton and her close aides to export American-style hydraulic fracturing — the horizontal drilling technique best known as fracking — to countries all over the world.

Can this be true? Has H. Clinton got something right for once?

This won't matter. For anyone whom the environment is a top issue, she will still get their vote.

And another small example of her being a liar or a hypocrite is like adding another page to The Stand.
