If You Want Real Energy, Dump Obozo

The Gulf of Mexico was first; then mountaintop coal-mining, then XL.


President Obama's United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing.--AOS quoting Examiner

It won't be "six months", either.  Like XL, the project will be delayed, if not cancelled outright, until Obozo is out of office.

Would you really have preferred business go on as usual after the gulf spill?

The pretext? Have you watched Gasland?

Dad29 said...

Sure. And I watched Cinderella and Batman.

Great fiction, all of 'em.

Jim said...

So those videos of people lighting their tap water were fakes?

No more than are the hot springs in Arkansas, nor Old Faithful.

Some things happen for no apparent reason. Other things happen because technicians make them happen (e.g., Chevy side-saddle "fires.")

Obama is punishing Ohio for going Republican.

Jim Spice is an Obama Toadie.

If you read the report of the Gulf oil spill, you will find that regulations were part of the cause. The procedure manual for emergencies resembled a novel. It was too big and convoluted to be effective. One of the reasons they didn't divert the oil/methane mix back out over the water was because of fear of environmental fines. I see it in my industry as well. Instead of streamlining and simplifying after a root cause analysis, the tendency is to just pile on more rules.
