Hope and change at work. This is so depressing that progress is choked on every front.

This is good news for those who don't think that strip mining is attractive.
This is the dirtiest of the oil processes and uses a lot of energy and water to produce.
You can't get to the shale without strip mining.

Funny how the conservatives don't want to burden their children with debt, but they have no problem leaving little or no natural resources open spaces or beautiful vistas for their children.

And the other shoe falls, Obama is letting loose, you don't think he meant it when he said he would have more leeway after the election. Your every day taxes are going up, your grocery bills are going up, your heating bills are going up. Unemployment is going up. We can call this president the upwardly moving president.

The doomsday crowd is out here. Restricting oil shale development will end the world.

Or, how about just proceeding with due caution? That's all "liberals" are asking.

Half of drilling permits gone, sixteen trillion in debt, eighty percent of our stimulus gone to other countries, and more fed money to Muslim Brotherhood then re-building our east coast after the storm.

Or, how about just proceeding with due caution?

Phranc,

Is the rhetoric true, or important?

How often during history, has people put in honorable men as leaders? Seldom! There's a reason why most people have lived in poverty, with few, if any freedoms.

I'll be one of the few, who will at least try to preserve the intent of this nation.

I don't base correctness with the majority. Champions run alone.

@worf
The intent of our nation does protect your right to free speech even when that means tolerating your wild conspiracy theories that do nothing to champion our nations interest but rather only seek to tare people apart for shallow political gains. There maybe another reason you run alone, just saying.

It's imperative that America ensure it's energy security. That means providing all of our own energy, and when we cannot, importing our energy from stable, reliable sources (i.e. Canada) instead of cartels (OPEC).

As long as other alternatives like the Keystone XL pipeline, drilling offshore and on the north slope of Alaska, etc are being impeded by unreasonable regulatory and environmentalist-based hurdles, other petroleum sources like oil shale and oil sands will be pursued.

More to come from the picnic organizer. How's $10 a gallon? To the majority of voters, this guy is the best and brightest.....sure he is.
