Obama to Hold Global Anti-Energy Forum Next Month in DC
Already this year democrats scrapped oil and gas leases in Utah, permanently banned drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), and nixed offshore drilling.
Democrats won’t allow nuclear energy.
Democrats won’t invest in clean coal.
For decades, Democrats have blocked efforts to responsibly develop this nation’s energy resources, transforming vast areas of opportunity into “The No Zone.”
Over the past 30 years:
Democrats have blocked the development of new sources of petroleum.
Democrats have blocked drilling in ANWR.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the coast of Florida.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the east coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off of the west coast.
Democrats have blocked drilling off the Alaskan coast.
Democrats have blocked building oil refineries.
Democrats have blocked clean nuclear energy production.
Democrats have blocked clean coal production.
Obama and the Democrats have prohibited the country from tapping into domestic energy reserves for decades. So it only makes sense that he would hold an energy forum next month in Washington DC.
President Barack Obama has invited the leaders of 16 major economies to Washington for a forum on energy and climate next month, the White House announced Saturday.
Obama, who recently turned his attention to the need for more clean-energy funding, has also asked U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to attend.
The preparatory session is scheduled for April 27-28, the White House said in a statement. It seeks to “generate the political leadership necessary” for a successful outcome at the U.N. climate change negotiation to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December.
“The preparatory sessions will culminate in a Major Economies Forum Leaders’ meeting,” to be held in July in La Maddalena, Italy, the statement said.
Aside from the United States, the 16 other major economies are Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Maybe someone will talk Obama into using America’s own reserves for energy?
That would be a good start.
