Drill Baby, Drill and Obama’s Deceit
Obama has recently stated he would open up parts of the U.S. Atlantic coast, Alaska and possibly offshore Florida. Russia is already drilling off the Cuban coast and China is too. They both have dismal records on ecological nightmares in their countries. That U.S. drillers are safer than them is not even debatable. Obama is not giving up anything by drilling in those areas. He fails to open the most promising areas.
The California coast is thought to have huge reserves and is not included. Pelosi no doubt made sure of that. Pelosi back in 1996 said “(In California) we learned the hard way that oil and water do not mix on our coast,” This was referring to the 1996 Santa Barbara spill that was responsible for killing about 3,600 seabirds. Wind Turbines are killing tens of thousands of low reproducing top predator raptors a year. Golden eagles have been virtually eliminated in southern California due to wind turbines. Liberals love wind turbines and don’t mention these killings.
There is the Bakken formation with an estimated 503 billion barrels of light sweet crude. It lies under North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana mostly on public lands and could eliminate our dependence on foreign oil. It would cost approximately $16 a barrel to produce and would cause the price of oil to plummet. There is 8X as much oil as Saudi Arabia; 18X as much oil as Iraq; 21X as much oil as Kuwait in the Bakken formation. Tens of thousands of jobs would be created. Obama doesn’t mention it.
This is Obama is tossing a few bread crumbs to the Republicans so they will pass the giant tax and job killing bill Cap and Trade. It is also to fool voters that he is doing something about the coming $4 gal gas prices this summer. If he was honest about reducing or eliminating our reliance on foreign oil he would open all areas to drilling. He chooses to kill an estimated 2 million jobs with Cap and Trade and cause energy rates to skyrocket. Opening all areas would create hundreds of thousands of jobs and reduce the cost of energy. The only losers would be Obama’s brother Muslims. Who is he representing ?
