Steve Hayward: America's Vast Energy Resources



Environmental scholar Steven Hayward exposes how U.S. energy policies have restricted access to America's vast energy resources. The result? America is less competitive in the world, energy prices are skyrocketing, and the economy is suffering. The United States must open federal lands to exploration and end the regulatory blockade that keeps shale oil and gas out of our reach. To read the North American Energy Inventory that Dr. Hayward's video is based on, go here.

I posted the link to this video yesterday in the comments to: "The "Shale Gale" Goes Global with Discoveries in Argentina and China, "Peak Oil" Losing Relevance"

Imagine Gov. and President Bush jr. pemanently banning oil drilling off the coast of Florida. As they did.

If only they allowed drilling in North Dakota... think of the resources held back by regulation.

Imagine if pseudo benny ever got his facts right before he made a comment...

Joel Klotkin writting in City Journal has the following: Wanted: Blue-Collar Workers

Who will power America’s new industrial revolution?

The money line if you'll pardon the pun: Driving the skilled-labor shortage is a remarkable resurgence in American manufacturing. Since 2009, the number of job openings in manufacturing has been rising, with average annual earnings of $73,000, well above the average earnings in education, health services, and many other fields, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data...

Benjamin, Methinks every governor and senator here in Florida has opposed drilling off our coast in order to "protect our environment" and the tourist trade. I don't know what the citizens of Florida think. Haven't seen any surveys. I favor drilling here and anywhere and everywhere. It can mean jobs and energy independence. Thankfully, I have mineral rights in western PA.

Benji always feels compelled to divert blame from his boyfriend and the other Democrat nutjobs he supports.

The unlocking of federal lands and regulations makes sense. The shale recommendation does not because the producers can't make money from shale gas.

Anyone want to elaborate on exactly what "Federal Land" is being proffered up here? After all there's 84 million acres in the National Parks alone...

There is a lot of drill core data from federal parks that suggests that there are oil or natural gas reserves that can be developed commercially. The energy companies want to develop some of these areas. One such area is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

There are other areas that can also be developed economically and safely. The sad part is that the government keeps getting in the way.
