Council: Obama Adm. Puts America At Risk With Gulf Energy Policy
Written by 

On Wednesday, The American Chemistry Council reacted to the Obama Adminsitration new offshore energy policy announced at a press conference earlier in the afternoon.

Here is the Statement by the American chemistry council: 

The American Chemistry Council today reacted with concern and dismay to the Obama Administration’s new offshore energy policy that excludes key domestic resources from its proposed Five-Year Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Plan.  The new policy, announced by U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) Secretary Ken Salazar, reverses earlier plans to allow oil and natural gas development off the Atlantic Coast and in the eastern Gulf of Mexico in the 2012-2017 time period.

 

“Affordable domestic energy drives economic growth and helps keep consumer costs down, but with this announcement the White House has essentially thrown that economic engine in reverse,” said Cal Dooley, President and CEO of the American Chemistry Council.  “What’s worse, the refusal to tap vast amounts of America’s own energy supplies will hurt us today and decades into the future when new drilling would start to bear fruit. “

 

“America needs a balanced energy policy that utilizes all energy sources to meet growing demand and ensure manufacturers can remain competitive around the world,” Dooley continued.  “By essentially striking one major energy source from the list, the administration has put America’s energy security at risk.”

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
