    No, I was aware of the regulations your referenced for the protection of the health and the environment. I wanted to see the specific regulations that J-mac claimed prevented us from producing more oil than we consume.

    Are you implying there are no such regulations?

    So far no one has been able to produce them. What else am I to think?

    If you didn’t find them in the link and list I posted, I can’t help you with what you should think because you aren’t interested in reality.

    Sounds like you want to play games if you ask me.

    EDIT: On second thought, I’ll pick an issue and play your game.

    Please explain to me why it is I should care if a species or organism on this planet goes extinct.

    I didn't make the claim. If you can't back it up, it is hardly surprising!

    Translated to: I can't back up my claim so I will change the subject.


    Please explain to me why it is I should care if a species or organism on this planet goes extinct.
    Because diversity of species and living systems are necessary for human development. We have a symbiotic relationship. We have personal stake in protecting the environment. Without a healthy environment a healthy economy is not sustainable.

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    From February,

    As oil prices continue to climb, a backlog of more than 100 offshore drilling plans for the Gulf of Mexico are awaiting approval from the Obama administration, according to federal data.
    The federal government has not approved a single new exploratory drilling plan in the Gulf of Mexico since lifting its deepwater drilling moratorium on Oct. 12. There are currently 103 plans awaiting review by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.

    The information reveals that the Obama administration — not the oil industry — is the culprit for the slowdown of drilling activity in the Gulf. The Gulf of Mexico accounts for more than 25 percent of domestic oil production.

    » Obama Administration Blocking 103 Gulf Drilling Permits - Big Government

    So as of Feb, Obama and his enviro-nuts within the government are slow tracking permitting through burdensome regulation, known as the BOEMRE. Wow, I am just shocked?

    Want more?

    Shell announced yesterday that its 4Q earnings were 13% below expectations thanks to “increased downtime at major refining facilities”. The company will also be halting its plans for drilling in Alaska after the feds rescinded their original approval of the project and slapped the industry with more burdensome regulations.

    But wait, why did Shell spend so much on its spill response program? Two words: federal regulations. I’m sure you remember how the Obama administration used the Deepwater Horizon spill over the summer to demonize the oil industry and illegally placed a moratorium on all U.S. offshore drilling. This, of course, was followed up with a truckload of new, bureaucracy-laden regulations from the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE)

    Shell Stops Alaska Oil Exploration, Score One for Obama Administration : Reagan's List
    The regulations that are strangling the oil industry are found here.

    Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE): Regulatory Reform

    And it doesn't stop there. Remember his vow to the coal industry? Obama through his EPA thug Lisa Jackson is end running congress to accomplish that goal.

    President Obama's cap-and-trade bill died in the Democrat-run 111th Congress, but that hasn't stopped the chief executive and Lisa Jackson, his U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator, from finding regulatory paths to achieve the same goals.

    Topping those goals is the abolition of coal as an electrical power-generating fuel. More than half of the electrical power used every day by Americans is generated by power plants fueled by coal. And 90 percent of all the coal consumed in the U.S. goes to electrical power generation.

    But that doesn't matter to Obama and Big Green, they are determined to kill the coal industry because of its alleged contribution to global warming.

    It appears that Jackson's EPA has now found the perfect regulatory tool to accomplish that goal - the proposed Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS), which, according to the agency, would apply to all "Coal and Oil-Fired Electric Utility Steam Generating Units and Standards of Performance for Fossil-Fuel-Fired Electric Utility, Industrial-Commercial-Institutional, and Small Industrial-Commercial-Institutional Steam Generating Units."

    Now even unions see Obama, EPA moving to kill coal, quarter-million jobs | Mark Tapscott | Beltway Confidential | Washington Examiner
    So libs can play dumb about regulatory restraint that the administration is using all they want, but it is clear, and out there and the people see that.

    Seriously? Did you not have a science class in high school? Never learned about the food chain? How our whole ecology is tied together, so that the failure of one small link can disrupt the whole chain? Between overfishing and global warming we're doing a pretty good job of killing the oceans right now.

    Hmm, now, was this sudden caution in response to anything? For example, have we recently gone through something like the biggest oil spill in the history of mankind?
