“Good news from  the Gulf! Mermaids are real! The bad news is they’ve just been declared extinct.”


Wind, solar, hydrogen, and sources yet unknown are all safe, worthy, feel good headlines for Washington polls and may eventually come true.  But not this century. 

Not if you mean they’ll replace fossil fuels. 

Not when the planet uses 1,000 bbl of oil a second on all things. 

Not when there is no oil shortage. More

Regulations hamper oil spill clean-up

First regulations failed to prevent the oil spill, and now regulations are preventing the spill from being cleaned. That’s not unusual. Government regulations often make problems worse, as with the regulations described in the sample letter below.

Please send a letter to Congress asking them to stop impeding the oil spill clean up, and to do less in general so they can focus more on trying to do a few things right.

You can copy or borrow from my sample letter to Congress . . .

You politicians constantly tell us that your regulations are needed to protect the environment. But it looks like your regulations are actually harming the environment, by strangling efforts to clean the BP oil spill.

Read this story: The Obama administration forced Lousiana to stop using 16 barges that were sucking up oily water.

And then this story: A stupid set of laws, called the Jones Acts, have blocked foreign crews from helping to clean the oil spill.

I think you guys need to start regulating less, and doing less in general. BP is paying a huge price for its incompetence, and deservedly so, but you guys constantly get a free ride. You aren’t responsible for anything! More
