The Obama Administration has already blocked a significant amount of offshore drilling and rejected the Keystone XL pipeline permit.
Now, as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy explains:
“Development of oil shale has the potential to virtually eliminate America’s need to import oil and create thousands of jobs, yet the administration is only interested in putting up roadblocks. Given the restrictions that the Obama Administration has proposed on offshore oil and gas exploration and the rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline permit, it has become clear that the only real winners under this president’s energy policy are overseas.”
The Institute, whose mission is to help develop a common sense energy strategy, has a lot of useful information on oil shale, the pipeline, and related issues that would help increase domestic energy production.
Hopefully, their important message will be heard and we can start taking advantage of domestic energy resources.
