I wonder what happens when trump runs out of gold to pay his mercenaries....?

Because energy companies want the supply of energy to increase and lower prices.

Exxon will get the rights to drill here, and the administration will pretend that it wasn't part of the deal to get Tillerson to head the State department.

Or at least ownership of the supply.. they can access it later.

I remember hearing that Exxon tried to send a mobile oil rig up there once.. it didn't end well.

Don't underestimate how much gold the country has to squeeze out for these traitors.
 
2017-09-16 08:01:19 AM  
Not sure why anyone would find this surprising. It fits perfectly with the usual conservative 'fark you I got mine' mindset. They open up national parks and stuff that they personally don't use to resource exploitation, rape them for whatever resources they have, and profit. Fark everyone else, I MADE MONEY.

I don't think anyone finds this or anything else this administration does surprising any more, except maybe the whole "Chuck & Nancy" thing.

But then again, that wasn't really surprising either.
 
2017-09-16 08:11:12 AM  
We're really going to have to do this again, huh?  No matter how often this gets shot down and domestic energy production keeps increasing, this remains the holy grail for some damn reason

I find it very ironic that Republican president Dwight Eisenhower warned us about the growing threat of the military-industrial complex. And then Republicans BECAME the military-industrial complex.

Looks like they fark each other.  Probably pretty desensitized in general after that

I'm rooting for the bears.
 
2017-09-16 08:39:18 AM  
Nobody will be drilling up there. Oil prices are too low and the cost of access and extraction will be too high. This is more window dressing for the base

JinxedLynx: Because energy companies want the supply of energy to increase and lower prices.


This the world is a wash in excess oil. OPEC is even having trouble getting the prices down. It's almost like the short sighted rise in prices made it so everyone started drilling and pretty much killed prices for the foreseeable future.

At last a president that will let me carry out my plans.
 
2017-09-16 09:03:16 AM  
It's not surprising. Trump (and most Republicans) believe that the Once-ler is the hero of the Lorax.
 
2017-09-16 09:10:05 AM  
The world is moving to renewables and the GOP is all "Drill, baby, drill!  There's profit to be had (at the expense of the flora and fauna living there. But who really cares about them?  I mean, I'M not going to lose my house or ecosystem?)"

Tillerson express-ordered his arctic parkas and boots immediately after he was confirmed by the senate.

jokes on them. the break-even point for arctic drilling is $100/barrel.

The average cost of extracting crude oil from the Arctic is $75 per barrel, almost triple the cost of extracting oil from onshore fields in the Middle East, according to a Deloitte report.
"Companies may need prices to be around $100 per barrel to make that so-called 'break-even' point in Arctic projects," said Katherine Hardin, a senior director at IHS Energy, a global oil and gas consultancy. "The price of Brent oil has recently been closer to $30 - that's a big gap."

Opening up ANWR world in no way punish her.  It's been a stated goal of the Alaska delegation since the '70s.

It also won't happen to any meaningful extent as long as fracking keeps the price of energy low.

You know I'm sick of the bottom part of this.  I voted for her, but I live in TN, meaning I'd have to find an additional 750,000 Hillary supporters and get them to the polls.  I'm happy for anyone who lives in a swing state, where their individual vote may have some meaning.  Everywhere else, you're going to need to do a hell of a lot more than vote if you want to make a dent

Also, fark your diabetes.  Have fun paying for insulin out of pocket when Trump takes away healthcare.

Hillary BEGGED to give you assholes healthcare.  SHE BEGGED YOU.  LET ME GIVE YOU HEALHCARE.  And you shoved it up her ass.  You have no sense of self-preservation and deserve to die in a fire.

Don't you care about polar bears and stuff?  It's dangerous to leave that oil just laying around in a wildlife refuge.  The only responsible course of action is to pump it out and burn it.
 
2017-09-16 06:17:31 PM  
The "wildlife refuge" will be just fine..
More good jobs for American workers

I know you guys hate it, but you aren't in control...
