Post Carbon – Obama administration reimposes offshore oil drilling ban

Post Carbon – Obama administration reimposes offshore oil drilling ban.

So Obama has admitted what we knew was the truth all along:

Obama administration reimposes offshore oil drilling ban

By Juliet Eilperin

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Wednesday afternoon that the Obama administration will not allow offshore oil drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico or off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts as part of the next five-year drilling plan, reversing two key policy changes President Obama announced in late March.

“We are adjusting our strategy in areas where there are no active leases,” Salazar told reporters in a phone call, adding that the administration has decided “not expand to new areas at this time” and instead “focus and expand our critical resources on areas that are currently active” when it comes to oil and gas drilling.

In March–less than a month before the BP oil spill–Obama and Salazar said they would open up the eastern Gulf and parts of the Atlantic, including off the coast of Virginia, to offshore oil and gas exploration. On both of those new areas, the administration said it would start scoping to see if oil and gas drilling would be suitable. The eastern Gulf remains closed to drilling under a congressional moratorium, but the White House indicated it would press to lift the moratorium if necessary.

In the meantime our tax dollars are going to Mexico and Cuba to drill in the Gulf of Mexico with none of the safe guards we impose on drillers!

By stopping drilling Obama is destroying 400,000 jobs and making it impossible for the United States to become oil independent. Pushing instead the so-called “electric car”.  I repeat:  Electricity does not come out of a wall plug!  It comes from fossil fuel burning generators!

Salazar said while the administration will still allow offshore drilling in both the central and western Gulf of Mexico and in the Arctic, it will delay lease sales planned for March and August in the gulf to conduct additional environmental reviews, and will prepare a new environmental assessment of Shell’s proposal to drill in Alaska’s Beaufort Sea next year. Shell officials warned that the additional review could jeopardize its ability to explore for oil and gas in the Arctic in 2011.

If Obama would lift the moratorium and go forward with his previous plans this depression the country is in would change almost overnight.  But then it is apparent that allowing America and Americans to get off their knees is not part of Obama’s agenda to redistribute our wealth to the poor countries and make the United States part of a global community under a Global Government.  This can only happen if American’s are pushed over the edge of despair,  and the country into bankruptcy.

What I can never understand is how destroying our wealth will bring the poor countries to wealth.  It is that old adage about giving a man a fish rather than teaching him to fish for himself.

And if Global Governance is what is wanted then by destroying the prosperous nations what then is left to govern?  Leaders only prosper when their constituents are producing something the leaders can line their own pockets with (steal).  So what will this Global Government rule over if all is chaos, despair and slavery.  BB

Please go to this website ; http://ning.it/a1Comj
, and scroll down to Sec.2 Policy(B-iii) you will read the line (iii)under “The United States shall promote this policy by”: pursuing the United States’ accession to the Law of the Sea Convention; the ” Law of the SEA Convention ” Which regulates ONLY ” International Waters ” what Obama wants to do Is place USA waterways into control under this UNITED NATION REGULATORY POLICY Which would Require the United States to Conform on USA Land to the Environmental Management and Commercial Developments of our Water Ways as How the United nations would DICTATE the USAGE LAWS . Obama commies are buying time to finish the transfer of control of USA waterways

I asked the President about the Policy above and this was the response , and as you can see the Ideologue is SET in the MIND about One World Order for the sake of the WORLD … The Reason why the Left is so head strong in their resistance towards the will of the people is clear ; they think they are saving earth from Humanity ….

Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans concerned about environmental issues, from recycling and pollution control to the well-being of our national parks and wildlife. I appreciate your perspective.

America’s natural resources and landscapes are among our Nation’s most precious treasures. We have an obligation to be responsible stewards of our environment and to protect these resources for future generations.

My Administration is taking action to protect and restore our land, water, and air. For example, the Recovery Act provides funds for hazardous waste cleanup, wastewater infrastructure construction, and projects that improve our Nation’s parks and wildlife refuges. The Omnibus Public Land Management Act that I signed designates thousands of miles of trails under the National Trails System, protects more than 1,000 miles of rivers, and secures millions of acres of wilderness.

As individuals, we can all take steps to reduce our impact on our environment. Americans can walk, bike, and use public transportation; buy products with less packaging; recycle and reuse paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum; and teach young people about environmental preservation. Families can save money by purchasing energy efficient products, turning off lights, and unplugging appliances. These small changes in our daily lives help build a cleaner and safer planet. To learn more about our environment and how you can make a difference, I encourage you to visit http://www.epa.gov or http://www.WhiteHouse.gov.

Thank you again for writing.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama

Well it is true that by stopping the United States from drilling for oil his administration is most certainly stopping AMERICANS from polluting. We are just giving our tax dollars to Mexico and Cuba so they can do the polluting! BB
