Skip to comments.President Obama bans oil drilling in large areas of Atlantic and Arctic oceans
Posted on 12/20/2016 3:28:10 PM PST by Innovative
President Obama moved to solidify his environmental legacy Tuesday by withdrawing hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land in the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean from future offshore oil and gas drilling. Obama used a little-known law called the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to protect large portions of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the Arctic and a string of canyons in the Atlantic stretching from Massachusetts to Virginia from oil exploration and the potential for spills.

The emperor has spoken so that he can claim that he did this.
Hey guys, “You can’t drill there for 30 days!” signed bho
PRyno and the Turtle better clear their decks of KStreet flotsam and get ready for some really heavy action...
There goes the White House pen budget after 20 Jan 17.
0bama sees who Trump has selected for his cabinet, and realizes the core of Trump’s economic revitalization strategy is energy exploitation and independence. Abundant and cheap domestically produced energy will literally refuel our reindustrialization.
0bama is deliberately trying to prevent this from happening. Do we need any more proof that this foreign imposter really hates Amreica?
His Royal Swineness 00bamanus Caligula thinks himself Emperor of the world..He will soon be disabused of that notion!
Lock him up.
With Barry acting like a petulant child, I would not be surprised in the least bit if Mr Trump hauls out his FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE and gives it to AG Sessions to Handle .
Continental Shelf from Mineral Leasing
December 20, 2016
MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR
SUBJECT: Withdrawal of Certain Areas off the Atlantic Coast on the Outer Continental Shelf from Mineral Leasing
Consistent with principles of responsible public stewardship entrusted to this office, with due consideration of the critical importance of canyons along the edge of the Atlantic continental shelf for marine mammals, deep water corals, other wildlife, and wildlife habitat, and to ensure that the unique resources associated with these canyons remain available for future generations, I hereby direct as follows:
Under the authority granted to me in section 12(a) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, 43 U.S.C. 1341(a), I hereby withdraw from disposition by leasing for a time period without specific expiration the areas of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) associated with 26 major canyons and canyon complexes offshore the Atlantic coast lying within areas currently designated by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management as the North Atlantic and Mid-Atlantic Planning Areas. The boundaries are delineated in the attached map and accompanying table of OCS blocks. Both the map and the table form a part of this memorandum. This withdrawal prevents consideration of this area for any future mineral leasing for purposes of exploration, development, or production.
Nothing in this withdrawal affects rights under existing leases in the withdrawn areas.
His EO’s can be undone as he easily made them. This is no more than a feckless gesture done on the part of the IA (Imperial Anus).
Barry must keep his Saudi master’s oil money flowing.
what he did was ban drilling in areas where it is no longer economic to drill
“With Barry acting like a petulant child, I would not be surprised in the least bit if Mr Trump hauls out his FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE and gives it to AG Sessions to Handle .”
And the fake SS#’s.
Fake birth certficate. (He claimed he was born in Kenya)
Suspicious Connecticut Social Security Number. (SSN's are assigned based on State of birth, if you are born in the USA. He says he was born in Hawaii, not Connecticut.)
So, where did Barry get his fake credentials?
Yes, quite true. Trump will erase those EO’s very quickly. Hopefully, the RINOs in Congress don’t stab him in the back.
Seriously, I see what Trump is doing, and if allowed to play out his strategy, America WILL become great again. It all comes down to cheap abundant domestically produced energy.
I think it’s the real reason he ran for President to begin with. Once in office, I think a lot of thing that Obama thought were safely buried and forgotten are going to be exhumed.
The statute in question gives the president discretionary powers. Any president can undo this decree by just withdrawing the previous president’s decree. It is certainly not a permanent decree.
PS: the other beneficial side effect is that when we stop sending our money to foreign nations, it stops coming back in the way of bribes to government officials to keep the money flowing.
Whatever, we own Congress and the Senate. We should repeal ALL of his efforts at wrecking on his way out the door.
The little F***ing bitch-boy is just throwing his little bitch-boy rage fit. Let the little bastard stamp his feet, when the time suits him, President Trump will simply undo anything tantrum boy did.
