You can have the review, that is fine with me, but shutting down exploratory wells in the interium that have nothing to do with the BP spill is not needed, nor is it a wise move.
Palm Beach Post:
The folks in Jay are sitting on top of one of the state's most oil-rich areas, a place where not that long ago tens of millions of barrels a year flowed out of the ground and where more than a dozen active wells are still producing within the town's 1.5 square miles.
"It was like Christmas time once a month," Linda Carden, Jay's city clerk for 34 years, said of the late '70s boom years when local landowners received as much as $100,000 a month in royalties from the wells on their land.
"There was so much money being made that it was kind of a joke that people that owned cemetery plots were getting paid" lucrative royalties for their 5-by-7 foot grave sites, retired oil worker Fred Sasser recalled.
Well, perhaps then you care to uphold the law? Two courts have now struck down the moratorium, and yet the Obama Administration does not seem to care.Don't really care if they have sympathy for us. You made a plaintive bleat here that we consider their suffering. Don't think I haven't. I've also considered the impact of their industry on me and mine. That diminished my sympathy for them.
Do you get light headed from the lack of oxygen way up there on your pedastal?
It is nice to see someone stick it to the Obama administration............

You also need to focus in some specific subsidies. In many scenarios oil companies are given subsidies and tax breaks for their research and work into alternative fuel sources. That might be something we might not want to do away with persay if rapid alternative energy development is the end goal.
