How environMENTAL regulations affect REAL people.
They did this to my community, shutting down all mining and logging. They spiked trees to “save” them from loggers, which ultimately killed the trees. They successfully federalized forest management to the point that wide swaths of the forests with no undergrowth management burned to the ground. Other forests were devastated by beetle infestations that could have been prevented with spraying. They have successfully lobbied to restrict most ranching, leaving us with a 3 month seasonal tourism economy. What little ranching remains is still under constant attack.
Totalitarian environmentalism must be STOPPED and STOPPED NOW!!!

Obama: Gas Prices are High Because Climate Change Deniers Refuse to Tackle Global Warming.
Oh, but let us not forget the lessons of the very recent past!
March 2008 – Soros Invests $811 Million In Brazilian Oil
August 2009 – Obama Helps Soros Drill For Oil In Brazil
Then this happens:
and, “suddenly”, one year later…
March 2011 – Why is Brazilian Oil Giant Petrobras Pumping Oil Off America’s Gulf Coast?
It’s like Obama and Soros don’t even care that we can read their timeline for the destruction of America’s economic superiority and independence from foreign oil directly in the headlines of the news outlets.
So, what are you going to do about it?
I hope Tristan Lawry’s found some protection for himself and that he is sleeping in a different place each night. He may end up like John P. Wheeler if he doesn’t.
The fact that Lawry’s device also transmits a significant amount of power — and he says it can be improved upon — means a spook can wander into any lair, stick one transducer on the wall and transmit any signals from inside from a corresponding transducer on the outside of the wall.
No electronic jamming. No concerns about batteries running flat.
Of course, Lawry couldnt care less if the MI6 suddenly has to find a new way to gather state secrets. Hes doing it for the good of humanity and claims it can solve a myriad of design problems.
Submarines are a good example. Because those inside cant collect sensory data from the outside without drilling hundreds of holes through shell for power and data cables, that makes for structural integrity issues.
The same problems arise for aerospace and nuclear engineers.
But for now, it simply means Traistan Lawry’s well on his way to becoming either extremely wealthy… or extremely missing.

Some on the right have criticized Obama for having no energy policy. This is wrong. Obama’s energy policy is working exactly the way it is designed. This administration knows that unless the price of fossil fuels skyrocket, expensive alternative energy sources, no matter how heavily subsidized, will continue to be unattractive to American consumers.
Obviously, this risky desire to have high gas prices is a punitive policy that foolishly ignores how Americans use petroleum. While oil is largely a transportation fuel, solar and wind can only contribute to our electricity demands. Oil accounts for less than 1% of our electricity demand.
The liberal fascination with developing expensive vehicles that run on electricity doesn’t change that: 1) Solar or wind powered vehicles don’t commercially exist; 2) The cars that do run on electricity, or even battery-powered hybrids still require gas; and 3) the high cost of the alternatively fueled vehicles makes them largely insignificant in the auto market and cost-prohibitive to the average consumer.
Sure, it would be ideal to have a national fleet of cars that are inexpensive and run on cheap and widely available alternative sources of energy. But the markets have demonstrated this reality is nowhere close to fruition. And when you try to hasten that reality by artificially jacking up the price of gas, the economic effects are felt largely by the poorest among us and disincentives business owners from hiring as their fixed operating costs increase.
Think about it, who feels the pain of an extra $1 at the gas pump? The rich guys that the left demonizes or the middle-to-low income wage earners who balance their budgets by the penny, not the dollar? If the only cars available on the market were $40,000 Chevy Volts, would a Lexus or BMW consumer be hit hard, or would the family looking for a barely affordable mode of shuttling their family be affected? Consumer Reports said Obama’s heralded Volt “is an expensive way to be green.”

Pelosi pushes the stripped down CLEAR act in order to block any substantive investigation into the BP oil spill.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stripped out authorization for an independent investigation into the Gulf disaster.
The Natural Resources Committee unanimously passed the amendment in committee markup July 14 offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would establish a bipartisan, independent, National Commission on Outer Continental Shelf Oil Spill Prevention.
Unlike the commission set up by President Obama — packed only with environmental activists and no engineers — the commission unanimously approved by the Natural Resources committee would be comprised of technical experts to study the actual events leading up to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
Not a single member of the committee voiced opposition at the bill’s markup. The Senate has also approved an independent commission.
“To investigate what went wrong and keep it from happening again, the commission must include members who have expertise in petroleum engineering. The President’s Commission has none,” Cassidy, the amendment’s author, told HUMAN EVENTS after the announcement. “It defies common sense that this amendment passed unanimously in committee, only to be deleted in the Speaker’s office.”
Is anyone really surprised?
BP Oil Spill: Clean-Up Crews Can’t Find Crude in the Gulf
Turns out, Mother Nature has been doing this for millions of years.
I’m not saying we should go dumping oil into our oceans.
But, we shouldn’t go ruining our economy because of one oil spill.
Drudge dredged up some pretty disturbing quotes today…just a few minutes ago, in fact…about the relationship between Barack Obama, Cap and Trade legislation, and at least three major oil companies. I’ll bet you can guess at least one.
BP America President and Chairman Lamar McKay: “BP supports an economy-wide price for carbon based on fair and equitable application across all sectors and believes that market based solutions, like a cap and trade or linked-fee, are the best solutions to manage GHG emissions.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)
Shell President Marvin E. Odum: “That is why Shell supports legislating a solution to energy and climate issues as a means to create a secure U.S. energy future, reduce dependence on foreign oil and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. This requires setting a price for carbon, and we recommend cap and trade.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)
ConocoPhillips CEO James J. Mulva: “Another key element of a comprehensive energy policy should be federal action to address global climate change. As you are aware, ConocoPhillips supports passage of a comprehensive federal law establishing a clear and transparent price for carbon.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)
