Obama Already Closing Federal Lands to Energy Production
I recall in two of the presidential debates that Barack Obama stated that he was all for the increase in oil, natural gas and coal production as well as the development of green energy sources. I knew that he was a liar and his actions less than a week after winning his second term, has proven me right.
This past Friday, the Interior Department announced its final plans to close off 1.6 million acres of federal land which was originally scheduled for possible oil shale development under the George W. Bush administration. All of the land in question is in the western part of the country.
