Soros has no issues with drill baby drill, as long as it’s not done in the US.

Soros uses the boy to remove competition form the most technologically advanced nation.

Gee, the cost differential wouldn’t have anything to do with the mountain of regulations imposed by the EPA, would it?

...and THAT is a fact that most environmentalists will deny, deny, deny until their heads explode!

Yes, Virginia, there really is cheap, plentiful carbon energy all over the planet!!

Without our EPA, environmentalists, NIMBYs and associated lawyers, it would be more profitable just about anywhere.

The key point: "Commercial production can start in three to five years, helped by the relatively high price of Russian gas . . . ."

Polish shale gas has strategic importance in that it offers Poland and Western Europe an alternative to being gouged by and dependent on Russian energy supplies. This appeals to both Poland's economic self-interest and her national psychology, which is proud of Poland's role as Europe's savior (at times) and as a bulwark against aggression by Mongols and Russians from the East and Islam from the South.

Good comment. Poland has paid a very high price for its independence. I hope that Fortuna, the “wheel of fortune,” is turning in Poland’s favor in the 21st century.

Poor Poland. They need to keep him out of their country. His money is dirty.

Who cares? Let the poles use their gas. Let us use our gas.

Our f’n government needs to gain freedom for US citizens more than for any foreign residents.

The Poles recognize that their country is in the best position it has enjoyed in three centuries. Yet, as you suggest, for a middle rank nation in a potentially rough neighborhood, good circumstances can quickly turn and deliver more of the bitter glory that is such a large and tragic element of Poland’s history.
