The country uses Nuclear, Oil, Nat Gas and coal for power consumption which adds up to 90% of total energy. The energy dept. with secretary Chu as leader has zero people behind him that is from any of these 4 industries. This energy dept. is full of greenies and this is a fact. I am still wondering about the gulf oil spill and who was their headsup guy to give opinions. This president along with the saharra club will KILL nat gas in the next four yrs. if re elected. Wake up now.
Republican trolls are so dumbed down it's stunning. They believe just about anything that goes against Obama.
Here is a new one for you. Obama is a secret Martian, if you peel his skin back from behind the ears he glows in the dark.
The whole birther thing shows just how dumb they are.
So Obama was born in Kenya? Really? That means his parents must have been real visionaries. They were super smart.
They some how knew that Obama was going to be president. But they knew that a non-citizen could not be president, so they had the foresight to go to Hawaii (why not the mainland I don't know) and convince a hospital to record a birth certificate and 2 different papers to publish a birth announcement. That way, their son (who was born in Kenya) could be president of the U.S. some 50 years later.
Wow! I can't believe 2 people from Kenya were that smart.
An Open Letter to President Obama: Actions, Not Words, Will Determine Our Energy Future

This op-ed was first published by The Oklahoman on March 21, 2012
From: Harold Hamm, Aubrey McClendon, Larry Nichols and Tom Ward:
"Mr. President, your words suggest you want the economic benefits American natural gas and oil can deliver. We hope your actions follow suit — to date they have not."
BO SAYS a lot.
So you're just going to ignore the fact that all the recent bills to promote nat gas use had a majority of Democrats voting for and a majority of Republicans voting against.
You know. You tea baggers can hate Obama all you want. I don't care. But you must hate him for something that is true.
What has he...himself done to push NG since January when he mentioned NG for vehicles. He just posed for pictures in front of a clne station. That's the truth. What kind of hold does this guy have on you?
Obama never supported the nat gas act. Here's what the radical, extremist Obama White House has done to promote a war on fossil fuels, including natural gas:
1. Strongly pushed the Obama/Waxman/Markey cap and trade bill, HR 2454, which attacked all fossil fuels, including nat gas, as greenhouse gas polluters. This bill heavily taxed and capped fossil fuel use. Obama and Pelosi rammed this bill through the Pelosi led house in 2009, but they couldn't get it through Obama's own Democrat led Senate. 2. The recent Obama EPA smear campaign against companies involved in fracking (EPA lost in courts three times for reason of having insufficient evidence for their charge that companies were polluting aquifers with fracking), 3. The Obama EPA expanding their authority to regulate greenhouse gases without Congressional approval, 4. Federal regulations that drive to cost to convert an automobile to natural gas to more than double the cost of conversion anywhere else in the world, 5. The Obama interior department purposely slow walking all oil and gas permitting and leasing on Federal lands as well as prohibiting production off the East and West coasts (The increase in domestic oil and gas production is on state and private lands, not Federal lands), 6. The Obama administration closely working with the Sierra Club and green movement to block the Keystone Pipeline, which besides bringing crude from Canada, would bring high quality crude from our very own Bakken oil fields to refineries, 7. Obama's Secretary of Energy Chu telling the Wall Street Journal that he would like to see our fuel prices go up to those in Europe, more than double, for the purpose of making his beloved renewable fuels more cost competitive, 8. First time Presidential candidate Obama telling the press in 2008 that under his plan of cap and trade, that electricity rates would "necessarily skyrocket", 9. Obama's former Energy Czar, Carol Browner, recently saying in an energy conference that she supports Obama essentially blackmailing natural gas producers in a second term by telling them that the Federal government will "allow fracking" if they in turn will support taxes on C02 emissions and steadily increasing mandates to use renewable energy, 10. Obama's former green jobs czar, Van Jones, a card carrying communist, saying that he is in favor of a complete Federal takeover of the energy sector for the purpose of mandating "social justice for minorities", 11. Obama's continued support for massive subsidies to bio fuels and renewable energy: Obama has the Navy purchasing and using algae bio fuel at a horrific cost of $26 per gallon. 12. Obama's continued call to remove the IRS Section 199 domestic production tax write offs from oil and gas production while leaving this tax treatment for all other domestic manufacturers --- which constitutes a targeted tax hike on oil and gas production, not the removal of a subsidy, 13. Obama's ongoing support for the $10,000 Federal tax subsidy to purchase an electric, GM Volt. 14. EPA rules that make it impossible to build a profitable new coal plant and impossible to export coal off our own West Coast (companies are forced to export out of Vancouver, Canada, which drives costs way up).
And yes, I know the Democrats in the Senate, (the same guys who wouldn't pass Obama's cap and trade plan and the same guys who rejected an Obama budget 97-0), recently supported the nat gas act as an amendment, but all the evidence points to the radical Obama White House being solidly in bed with the green movement and working against fossil fuels. Once the election is over and if Obama wins, these far left ideologues in the executive branch will pursue their anti fossil agenda with a vengeance through more expansion of executive branch power, executive orders and Federal regulatory overreach.
