The disconnect between the administration’s “All-of-the-Above” energy rhetoric and actual policy looks like it’ll continue now that President Obama was reelected. The Hill reports that the Interior Department plans to block 1.6 million acres of federal land from oil development...
...This type of development shouldn't be confused with extracting oil and natural gas from shale formations using hydraulic fracturing. This is more akin to mining.
Oil and gas production on federal lands has fallen, and based on this action, I expect that trend to continue.
America is the only nation on Earth that restricts access to its own oil.
And this plainly endangers our economic and national security interests.
