Taken individually, the items on this list are outrageous enough; but collectively, these ten examples show how the current administration puts America’s energy needs behind the left’s obsession with global warming alarmism.
1. Crucify oil companies
Al Armendariz, administrator of the EPA’s Texas regional office, unwittingly let the Obama administration’s true intentions be known with comments he made about enforcing environmental regulations on energy companies. “It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean,” he said. “They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw, and they’d crucify them.” That pretty much sums up the policies of an administration that has done everything it can to combat the oil industry.
2. Keystone flub
Obama’s decision to halt the Keystone Pipeline XL cost the nation jobs, as well as access to energy resources not controlled by Middle East madmen, all to appease his environmental backers and Hollywood activists.
