Obama pledged the use of coal and oil during his 2010 State of the Union address along with nuclear an alternative energy sources.
...for the next three years and probably more, trillions of dollars in domestic energy assets will remain untouched while billions of dollars more are spent on foreign oil.
Pres Obama is locking away vast amounts of natural and easily accessible sources of energy.
His administration is also seeking to lock up and steal millions more acres of lands that hold much more energy.
“Secretary Salazar has finally confirmed what had long been feared – that the Obama Administration has no intention of opening up new areas for offshore drilling during his four-years in office,” said Rep. Doc Hastings, the ranking Republican on the House Natural Resources Committee.
Drilling was supposed to begin this July. But Salazar said he intends to discard the 2010-2015 lease plan developed by the Bush administration in favor of a new plan that won’t even go into effect until 2012.
So much for providing a means of cheap energy for the masses. The person who controls the lands and the energy, controls the people.
This move has nothing to do with going green or protecting the environment. It is a solid and evil move to drive the cost of energy through the roof and to drive people towards the government. With the cost of oil and gas skyrocketing under Obama, the only cheap means of transport will be the federally subsidized mass transit systems. If you want to get anywhere, you will have to seek the government's help.
And as a side benefit for the liberal anti-Americans, with the rising costs to find and produce petroleum, finally alternative "green"-approved energy sources become price-competitive. What the green-libs could not do, forcibly drive down the cost of green energy, they will succeed in forcibly driving UP the cost of our nation's life blood.
Again, votes matter. Yes, voting for Obama was historic and was more than likely done so for that very and sole reason. But, choices have consequences. Now look at the vast amount of corruption and anti-American ideology that has occurred for the primary purpose of decimating this great nation.
