Nuts. Obama Says Shifting From Foreign Oil to Green Alternatives Will Create Jobs
Of all the community organizers to get stuck with as president we get the die-hard green loon.
In his weekly address Barack Obama told the country that moving away from imported oil and moving to expensive alternatives will help create jobs.
And, you wonder why gas prices have doubled since Obama moved into the White House?
At least 7 oil rigs moved out of the Gulf area to other parts of the world since President Obama initiated his moratorium last year. Obama’s energy plan includes blocking domestic drilling here at home.
President Barack Obama says shifting the U.S. away from imported oil and toward cleaner forms of energy will add momentum to a trend that has led to 1.8 million new jobs in the past 13 months.
Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday to promote his ideas for bringing down gasoline prices by decreasing U.S. dependence on foreign oil. A blueprint he outlined in a recent speech calls for increasing domestic oil exploration and production, making cars and trucks more energy efficient and building vehicles that run on alternative fuels or electricity.
Noting that the U.S. doesn’t have enough oil reserves to meet its needs, he set a goal of reducing imports by one-third by 2025.
“By doing so, we’re going to make our economy less vulnerable to wild swings in oil prices,” Obama said. “We’re going to use cleaner sources of energy that don’t imperil our climate. And we’re going to spark new products and businesses all over the country by tapping America’s greatest renewable resource: our ingenuity.”
According to international studies subsidizing renewable energy in the U.S. may destroy two jobs for every one created. But, don’t expect the state-run media to report on this.
