As you can see, the animals are in desperate straits.
WASHINGTON (Nov. 9) – President-elect Obama plans to use his executive powers to make an immediate impact when he takes office, perhaps reversing Bush administration policies on stem cell research and domestic drilling for oil and natural gas.
John Podesta, Obama's transition chief, said Sunday Obama is reviewing President Bush's executive orders on those issues and others as he works to undo policies enacted during eight years of Republican rule. He said the president can use such orders to move quickly on his own.
That should give you a flavor of what is coming.
And the following should give you a real taste.
On drilling, the federal Bureau of Land Management is opening about 360,000 acres of public land in Utah to oil and gas drilling. Bush administration officials argue that the drilling will not harm sensitive areas; environmentalists oppose it.
"They want to have oil and gas drilling in some of the most sensitive, fragile lands in Utah," Podesta said. "I think that's a mistake."
There is no doubt in my mind the smartest man in the world will block nuclear and off shore drilling as well as, "sensitive areas."
While the Fannie and Freddie mess, made by Barney Franks and Chris Dodd sat the table for our financial woes, it was the cost of oil, and the blocking of drilling for new sources that was the main course.
And the Demos either don't know this or don't give a damn or both.
