I was going to make this a separate post, but it fits in here just fine. In this video, Michelle Bachmann hits it out of the park and lays down the facts about why The Obama-Fuhrer has been attacking the energy sector and how it is helping to destroy the economy and your budget. Obama doesn’t want you to have access to energy. He wants to control you and keep you as confined as possible. Any vote for any Democrat in the upcoming election is a vote for higher and higher gas prices. Count on it.

I'll answer it.



Obama's dictatorial EPA is increasing the price of energy coupled with his silly green agenga which is inefficient and therefore costly. And for your information, we sit on more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, we aren't allowed to drill it because of enviro-nuts.



And Obama has decreased oil production here, he brags about issuing leases but this doesn't allow drilling. The two-faced turd has cut back on issuing drilling permits.



Also, his moratorium in the gulf in breach of a court order caused rigs to go elsewhere.



So there, your question is answered.


Yeah I suppose that's an "answer" albeit it just raises more questions (and a desire for some citations).



How is the EPA "dictatorial" now? Was the EPA (which was created at least a couple of decades ago) "dictatorial" during prior administrations? What makes "Obama's" EPA different?



Yes, of course "green" technology is new(ish) and therefore expensive but what has that got to do with the global oil market? The fact that new technology is expensive only highlights the profitability of old technology. Last time I checked, fossil fuel producers were still raking in enormous profits (due in part to massive tax breaks at the federal level). Oh wait, I get it… since more folks are driving hybrids the oil concerns must jack up prices to make up for lost revenue… something like that?



Please provide citations for "more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia"… that is highly counterintuitive especially since Middle Eastern reserves are still relatively sweet and easy to access.



The Deepwater Horizon disaster was indeed an eye-opening tragedy which emphasized the still extant cowboy culture of drill early and often; but when "drill, baby, drill" became "spill, baby, spill", I think many reasonable folks realized that "drill at all costs" shouldn't include our food supply and the lost lives of loved ones. I may be a capitalist but that doesn't necessarily mean that I'm cruel, uncaring, and immune to enlightenment.



And do you really think that the rigs went "elsewhere"? Do you know what it costs to move one of those things? It's like moving an office tower… on water! They didn't move; they're still out there; hundreds of rigs, many of which are abandoned rusting hulks.

And now the moron's EPA is going after natural gas production: (snip link, see above)



So there you have it, Obama and his EPA are deliberately curtailing energy production and increasing costs. …


I am well aware of the overabundance of coal and natural gas supplies; in another thread I referred to their market prices as being in "a race to the bottom". But this thread is not about energy prices; we're talking retail gasoline prices. I'm happy to help you vent your ire but now it's time to focus.

See above re: "[N]othing to do with retail gasoline prices!" Clearly you want to rail against President Obama; go right ahead, that doesn't bother me. I was just wondering how much influence the POTUS has on retail prices; and, so far, I don't feel that I've received much compelling information.

It wasn't an eye-opening tragedy at all, it's happened before elsewhere. Also, the Obama administration made it worse by not following proper procedures after it happened. The oil didn't need to reach the shore.

Of course you don't, because your commentary shows youre a pro-Obama, greenie global warming supporter. You're willing to ignore what he's doing to the economy with regards to both oil and all energy costs. Even though I've adequately laid it all out for you.

MORE dictatorial? I'm not sure. I've been in the environmental field for 18 years. It's always been dictatorial. As well as inconsistent, agenda-driven, intermittently competent, and bombastic. But more dictatorial? Not sure. It certainly has been handed a hell of a lot more power under this regime however.

Quiz question: Why were they drilling in waters so deep? Why could they not drill closer to shore where water depth wasn't quite such a problem?

And you are correct, natural gas & coal discussions are not relevant.

Is this a rhetorical "quiz"? Easy sweet crude is a thing of the past…(Next thing you know old Jeb's a millionaire)… that is inarguable. Even middle east producers are concerned about production versus internal (much less external) demand.



Why were they drilling so deep? Well duh because like a little old lady with a fistful of quarters on a bus trip to a casino, they're looking to strike it rich no matter the odds. They've hit on a couple of winners but keep chasing that jackpot.



Look, the chase is not sustainable. It takes millions of years for the planet to make oil and it's taken just a century for us to figure out how to leverage it. We have to take more chances to match current much less future consumption and it's ultimately a losing proposition. And folks are beginning to realize that food and water and lives are not a reasonable tradeoff… especially not when America's traditionally cheap gasoline hovers around $4 per gallon.

No histronics, I'm afraid you're detecting your own ignorance of the subject. My points you responded to with your comments above completely miss the mark, deliberately on your part, of course.

Being a smartass doesn't work with me, loverboy. You know exactly what I mean, Obama is deliberately reducing the production of all natural energy sources in order to promote an inefficient green agenda. Currently, his policies most noticable is the price of oil.

A complete deflection once again, well no, it again only proves your ignorance regarding the link between oil and gas. That's why I won't waste my time informing you of the facts, it takes too long and in fact, I've done it on here before. But I ain't wasting my time all over again on you.

Oh I'm paying attention, and of course it's happened before, so have car and plane crashes so I guess we should halt them doing their job as well in the interest of safety.

You should check out the safest method, then the second-safest method of drilling, it may enlighten your ignorance of the subject. I ain't going to explain it to an deliberate ignoramus who supports green technologies. And I'll remind you the oil need never have reached the Gulf shore, Obama and his minions allowed that to happen.

See, once again you haven't a clue on the subject. A rig only makes money when it's drilling, the same way an aircraft only makes money when it's flying. But you missed the metaphor, how startling!

You will need to do that if Obama has his way, plug it in before you drive and pay a fortune to charge it up. There's a link to my mentioning coal fired power plants in the previous sentence. Provided you have the brains or the willingness to work it out.

Well you're certainly ignorant when it comes to oil prices, Obama and the EPA, and you're a greenie so you support his silly agenda.

Yeah, that "supply and demand" stuff has nothing to do with it. Adam Smith? Total rube. Besides, he was Scottish, what the hell do THEY know, amirite?

:rolleyes:

Look chief, this is pretty simple. Supply is steady, but demand is rising. This translates into a net increase of costs to the consumer. Just wait until the oil held in reserve by the petroleum companies starts to run low, and the "supply" end of this scale starts to shrink.

"THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO DRILL MORE! EVERYWHERE! ALL THE TIME!" I hear you scream.

You think so? You're wrong. See we can open up every single possible oil well we can dream of, and at best we could stabilize global prices for, hmmm, I'd give it a month, maybe two before demand again begins to outstrip supply again. And yeah, global prices. All that oil you want to suck out of American soil? That's not America's oil, oh hell no. That's ExxonMobil's oil. or Shell's oil. or BP's oil. Every last drop is getting put on the global market, regardless of its place of origin, and you'll only see a drop of it if you're paying the marked price at the pump; which will still be high because there's about three billion people in south and east Asia competing with you for that stuff.

Now, of course, we could tell the oil corporations to go get bent, nationalize our own oil and set up a system to use that oil to build infrastructure for more sustainable and stable means of generating energy.. .but you know what? That would be socialism with a dash of environmentalism thrown in for flavor. How horrible would that be, right?

They were driven offshore because the EPA forbids drilling closer to shore.

Hmmm. Does this count as reason for high prices? I guess Obama has no control over this either? Someones argument just went down in flames. This seems dictatorial to me.

I will take a look at that topic when I have the opportunity but (besides the cross-post) I can't help but notice that that thread is pendant upon an editorial from a pseudo-news organization. Surely you know that CNS was formerly known as "Conservative News Service", has a long and unbroken record of propaganda with the word "news" whispered over it, and is easily recognizable as a player in the fringe-right noise machine/echo chamber. If you are basing your opinion on such a source then I heartily recommend broadening your reading horizons.

It has nothing to do with proven reserves, no. Which is what you were equating. […]


We're talking about the market my friend; you know, price at the pump? (See topic.) Efficiency of production is unquestionably and inarguably part of the equation. If rigs have indeed moved… (an as yet undemonstrated assertion)… profit is the only thing that could make that happen.

They were driven offshore because the EPA forbids drilling closer to shore.



thanks for playing


Your comment is not the rebuttal that you apparently think it is. Unsurprisingly, producers are chasing the money. That's why they're in the game; to make money. If the cost of fighting governmental proscriptions (including lobbying) cuts too deeply into their profits then they will go somewhere else.



Remember, I'm one of those who think the longer you leave it in the ground the more valuable it becomes. Barring miraculous discoveries of large sweet and easy fields, the end is in sight for "traditional" oil production. It will be used up; perhaps not in our lifetimes but not too far in the future. Pump prices will continue to fluctuate but the trend is going to be upwards.



(Anyone else remember when gasoline was $0.25 per gallon? No? How about $1 per gallon? Remember that?)



I'm still waiting for anyone to address the supposed "moving" of oil rigs; that barely happens at all. Most rigs are abandoned, sunk, sold as scrap, repurposed, or otherwise deliberately/unintentionally destroyed. The "mobility" of oil rigs is largely a myth; they get parked and that's about it. This has been going on for decades (it's part of the business) and therefore, trying to blame it on a particular administration is quite obviously political and shallow.

Stop your deflecting, anytime you're proven wrong you go for the source, you're always the same. Well, this time the 'source' includes the video of your precious EPA goon stating exactly what the source is reporting.

As for your long winded anti-conservative harping. It only proves you're a pro-Obama supporter of his green agenda, at the expense of course, of developing our natural resources.

As for 'heartily' recommending anyone 'broadening their reading horizons.' I heartily recommend you pull your head out of your arse.
