HOT AIR OR OIL? 19,000,000 acres in the desert covered up or 23,000,000 acres in far away Alaska may be drilled. You choose which sounds best.

President Obama -- certainly without considering the upcoming election -- is thinking about possibly proposing the possibility of opening up for application to the Interior Department, EPA, OPA 23,000,000 acres in the National Petroleum Reserve, a remote wilderness in the far reaches of Alaska that no one would want to visit, as his "preferred alternative" out of four of them to have a few holes drilled looking for oil and natural gas deposits there.  This selection over the others would slam shut the door on tens of millions of acres of major government oil and gas holdings nearby.  Environmentalists cheered.  (Something's wrong.)

President Obama -- certainly without considering the upcoming election -- will approve, allow and encourage his favorite little taxpayer-financed industry -- 19,000,000 acres of readily-accessable vacationland to be covered with solar panels.  Starting with an immediate construction permit on 285,000 acres -- hundreds of thousands of individual solar panels littering desertland and pristine wilderness -- and streamlining regulations (wow, streamlining regulations!) of the National Environmental Policy Act while cutting up-front fees (saving taxpayers giving taxpayer money to the government, go figure)!  $9,000,000,000 of taxpayer monies went to such boondoggles from President Obama from 2009 through 2011.  Snail darters, owls, desert tortoises and bighorn sheep might suffer and ultimately millions of acres strangled of light.  But hey, metal structures convered with massive semiconductor panels are much prettier than nature anyway.  Environmentalists cheered.  (Something's wrong.)

President Obama also arbitrarily closed down the possibility of obtaining shale oil off of federal lands from the 2005 Energy Policy Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush.

You want economic growth?  It takes energy that for the forseeable future can ONLY come from natural gas, oil and natural coal.

President Obama prefers to buy oil for the energy needs of the United States from Saudi Arabia.

Makes you think.
