Gini coefficient is commonly used as a measure of inequality of income or wealth…. For OECD countries, in the late 2000s, considering the effect of taxes and transfer payments, the income Gini coefficient ranged between 0.24 to 0.49, with Slovenia the lowest and Chile the highest.

Obomney wants to export U.S. natural gas

“We are confident that either one would be supportive of LNG exports,” Cooper told Rigzone.

U.S. LNG imports, which peaked at nearly 2.4 billion cubic feet per day in 2007, have fallen substantially as the growth in North American gas production due to shale gas, according to an Oct. 18 report by RBAC Inc., a company that develops and licenses management decision support systems for the energy industry. As a result, LNG facility backers are now seeking to outfit existing U.S. LNG import facilities with liquefaction equipment to ship LNG overseas.

Proponents say U.S. LNG exports will benefit the United States by creating construction jobs, and generate revenue to reduce the U.S. trade deficit through LNG sales and federal, state and local government tax revenues.

via RIGZONE – Romney, Obama Seen Favoring U.S. LNG Exports.

Know what else creates jobs and generates revenues? Cheap domestic gas. Exporting gas which would otherwise be flooding the U.S. market would raise the price for Americans. This would probably destroy a lot more jobs than would be created to build and maintain LNG terminals. The job-creation argument goes out the window.

In the meantime, the negative consequences of energy production would accrue right here in America.

Are western Americans willing to sacrifice their water so international companies can frack their shale gas and ship it to China? Robomney bets yes.

Candidates argue over who can burn more oil, gas and coal and bail out more failed industries

From the official transcript of last night’s town hall-style debate.

R: President Obama’s policies have strangled oil production in this country! When I’m President I will OPEN THE FREAKING SPIGOTS.

O: The opening of spigots is an idea we developed in my administration, Governor. We are going to produce and burn more oil than you ever thought possible, then we are going to burn some more. I guarantee it.

R: When I am President we will literally be swimming in oil, gas and coal.

O: Obama starts with O and that stands for OIL!!

R: Admit that you hate oil. Admit that you hate gas.

O: I LOVE OIL. I LOVE COAL. I LOVE GAS.

[Both men start jumping up and down, waving their arms like bonobos.]

R: I AM #!*$# CRAZY FOR OIL, GAS AND COAL!!

O: HiYEEEAARRRGGGHHH!! OOOOOIIILLLLLLL!!!
