Radical Conservationists Use Junk Science to Block Oil Drilling & Save Non-Threatened Species

Forget cheaper gas prices–

As gas prices sky rocket the Democratic Congress believes suing OPEC and nationalizing the oil industry is the answer to energy independence.
The Democratic Party refuses to expand development or production of energy sources.

Which party blocked the development of new sources of petroleum?– Democrat
Which party blocked drilling in ANWR?– Democrat
Which party blocked drilling off the coast of Florida?– Democrat
Which party blocked drilling off of the east coast?– Democrat
Which party blocked drilling off of the west coast?– Democrat
Which party blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast?– Democrat
Which party blocked building oil refineries?– Democrat
Which party blocked clean nuclear energy production?– Democrat
Which party blocked clean coal production?– Democrat

And, now as gas prices sky rocket, radical liberal groups are demanding that the US ban offshore oil drilling and development to protect species not threatened by imaginary global warming.

After successfully blocking the Bush Administration from opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas development due to a “predicted” decline in polar bear numbers due to global warming, the radical conservationists are now going to sue to get the walrus placed on the threatened species list.
The Anchorage Daily News reported:

A conservation group gave notice Tuesday that it will sue to force federal action on a petition to list the Pacific walrus as a threatened species because of threats from global warming and offshore petroleum development.

The deadline was May 8 for an initial 90-day review of the petition by the U.S. Department of the Interior, according to Center for Biological Diversity attorney Brendan Cummings.

The group filed the petition in February.

Shaye Wolf, a biologist and lead author of the petition, said Arctic sea ice is disappearing faster than the best predictions of climate models.

“As the sea ice recedes, so does the future of the Pacific walrus,” she said.

The conservation group was one of three that successfully petitioned to have polar bears listed as threatened because of sea ice loss caused by global warming, a decision announced May 14 by Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne. That listing also followed court action to force deadline decisions.

But, it doesn’t stop there…
The radical conservationists are also petitioning to have government protect the ringed, bearded and spotted seals, which occur in the icy waters off Alaska in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas.

Forget lower gas prices and energy independence.
Democratic politicians will make sure that the US remains enslaved to radical regimes for oil supplies.

That’s great– They’re fighting global warming with global warming!
Figures.

UPDATE 2: More ammunition for the enviro-wackos.
