So, what would an Obama administered life look like? What kind of actions would his administration seek to control or take over?
Would we see NASA trying to determine building contracts? Would we see the Department of Commerce controlling tax policies?
Or, how about...
The U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife has until May to determine if it has enough evidence to support a full review of the endangered species request. Critics are hoping this branch of the Interior Department will refrain from setting energy policy.
"This is the ultimate regulatory train wreck if you are going to have the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service try to 'gently' administer to the economy to back out of fossil fuels from our energy mix," Horner told FOX News.
"If these groups succeed, you're talking about using the courts to impose a policy agenda essentially making illegal the source of the vast majority of our energy and therefore economic activity," said Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and author of several books critical of climate-change activists.
Horner worries that restrictions on energy production would mandate a sharp cut in greenhouse gases and a regulation of carbon in the atmosphere, forcing businesses, manufacturers and energy producers to shut down across the country.
