What part do LNG exports play in the industry growth? How sensitive is the jobs growth to government regulation? How recession/depression proof are these jobs?

There's a lot of jobs that our country either no longer has the expertise to support or those who have the skills are now entering retirement.

The US has become a service based labor pool and no longer has a leading technological background.

Americans need to greatly reduce their dependency on fossil fuels or they will run completely out in only a generation or two.
