Environmentalists Killing Jobs – With Administration’s Help

For all the administration’s talk about job creation being priority one, the President has targeted a number of occupations for elimination because environmentalists don’t like them. As my New York Post article sets out, oil industry workers, factory workers, miners, and fisherman are all being subjected to environmental regulations that are putting these people out of work. (I could have added loggers, ranchers, and others as well). The worst is yet to come, especially with EPA’s global warming agenda to take effect in January of 2011, not to mention the President’s recent announcement that he is shutting down nearly all offshore oil and gas leasing. When the wishes of environmental activists clash with the need to save and create jobs, the Obama administration has sided with the environmentalists nearly every time.

Typical Obama logic. Say one thing, do something contrary. This man cannot be depended on for logical thinking. I get the feeling that the natural world is a mystery to him. I know it is to his soulmate environmentalists who's latest blunder is the endangered polar bear who has survived at least 3 periods warmer than today since the Wisconsin glacial stage begam melting 14,000 years ago.
