    Interior proposal would limit commercial oil shale development on federal lands in We

    Obama claimed in the campaign to get us off foreign oil and the first thing he does is stop production on government land. This means he is stopping us from getting off foreign oil

    http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-...-from-drilling


    The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.
    The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation.
    The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.






    Interior’s Bureau of Land Management cited environmental concerns for the proposed changes. Among other things, it excised lands with “wilderness characteristics” and areas that conflicted with sage grouse habitats. Under the plan, 677,000 acres in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming would be open for oil shale exploration. Another 130,000 acres in Utah would be set aside for tar sands production.

    Immediately After The Election…

    Hussein Obama shows the face of his evil.

    Putting oil & gas exploration off-limits.

    The election never really was about aredefinition of rape. It was alwaysabout a deliberate wrecking of the economy.
