    Moratorium on drilling for oil off shore.

    Cutting gas and oil subsidies

    No new refineries

    No drilling in ANWR

    Set goal of 25% renewables by 2025

    Huh?? Perhaps you are just to far out on the left to recognize the Chicken Little extremist wackos around you.

    Focus on the environmental effects of extracting shale oil in your own backyard first.

    "Environmental groups and experts hit out at the US government on Tuesday following its announcement that the Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell would be allowed to resume offshore exploration and drilling in the Arctic’s American waters. Unforgiving conditions in the Arctic’s icy waters not only make the chances of a spill likely, the complete lack of infrastructure in place to deal with a potential disaster means the consequences of the move could be calamitous, environmental activists and experts say.

    According to a study published in February by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the same regulatory governmental agency that yesterday issued its approval of Shell’s Chukchi Sea exploration plan, the chances of one or more oil spills occurring as a result of drilling in the Arctic over the next 77 years are 75%. In open water or broken ice, the same study says that between 44% and 62% of crude oil resulting from a spill would stay put – neither dispersing nor evaporating – after 30 days. “Yesterday’s announcement is inconsistent with the federal government’s commitment for stewardship of the Arctic Ocean, it is inconsistent with President Obama’s commitment to combat climate change, and it is a clear prioritization of Shell’s needs ahead of the protection of one of our most important natural resources,” said Michael LeVine, Oceana’s Pacific senior counsel."

    Of course it could, of course drilling could lead to a spill. Having sex can lead to pregnancy, too.

    It's fossil fuels that are the scourge, we should have been on renewables long ago. 35 wrecking years of Reaganomics is what's been hurting the poor, and declining the middle class. That's where the contempt is.

    Because oil spills and pregnancy are equal catastrophes.
