Oil drilling: Here, There, Everywhere!



The proposed new MMS 5-Year Oil Lease plan is just plain scary. This plan was drawn up by the Bush Administration in their waning hours and is now the responsibility of Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.

There are 4 hearings coming up in April to hear from the public on this proposed plan. We should voice our opposition loudly!

Monday, April 6, 2009 - Atlantic City, New Jersey

Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - New Orleans, Louisiana

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - Anchorage, Alaska

Thursday, April 16, 2009 - San Francisco, California

A Facebook Event page has been created for the first, and what will undoubtedly be the biggest public hearing on this issue. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=56858724247#/event.php?eid=56858724247. I predict it will have several hundred attendees very soon. Before creating the event I looked around Facebook to see if anyone else had made such a page. No one had, but I did find these groups. This one called Start Domestic Oil Production and Oil Shale Production Today! has a whopping 17 members. http://www.facebook.com/s.php?init=q&q=OCS%20Drilling&ref=ts&sid=e16d845594b13f7b18c9d4a7893d94d3#/group.php?sid=e16d845594b13f7b18c9d4a7893d94d3&gid=20366441265

And also, American Energy Freedom Day http://www.facebook.com/s.php?init=q&q=OCS%20Drilling&ref=ts&sid=e16d845594b13f7b18c9d4a7893d94d3#/group.php?sid=e16d845594b13f7b18c9d4a7893d94d3&gid=30070247467. It has more members, 289, but it has been around for 7 months. Lame.

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. 338A Sbobet Casino Agen Sbobet
