Fuel to the fire? Fuel exports soar under Obama

In this Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 photo, an automobile emissions test facility stands empty while waiting for customers in Panama City. The energy-efficiency push is all but absent in Panama, where gasoline sells for about $1 a gallon. The government discounts the price because the fuel is dirtier than what foreign refiners charge for cleaner blends of U.S. gasoline. Among the things they are not enforcing are tailpipe tests aimed at making sure cars are running efficiently and releasing the least amount of pollution. The workers and owners said no one comes for the $16 test.

But the tiny emblems of green energy offer no hope against climate change.
