EPA Chief Lisa Jackson is stepping down. She presented hurdles and roadblocks to much of the Oil and Gas Industry...was a major objector to the XLpipeline project. She will not be missed by the O&G Industry and the Republican House. Hopefully, the new person will see the economic and labor advantages and be more cooperative.
Obama truly doesn't care about the US economy...He speaks for the disenfranchised around the people of color world in his mind.....He believes that we are all equal, just the ones in the Government are a bit more equal
I'm not so sure about that. Obama has himself between a rock and hard spot. The key campaign issues were jobs and the economy. The O&G (NG & LNG) industry provides a way out of both of those issues. Supposedly, Obama favors NG over other fuels, but his adminstration has blocked every effort through the EPA. Further, during the past year(s), FERC has dragged their feet on issuing permits for the exporting of LNG. In Dec. FERC said it would release its review of 15-20 applications. If approved, this would be a major game-changer to the NG industry. Waiting for further news.
