Thought this article was worth sharing for its myth-busting about high gas prices and how lawmakers have failed us. "As economy tanks, leadership runs on empty". Interested in comments and referrals to books on this topic.

What an awesome article about the truth. I work in the energy industry and have grown increasingly frustrated at misguided and uninformed studies and flat out lies which have ruined entire local economies and business, and now you are seeing the the fruits of those lies play out nationally and globally. These lies and falsehoods come under the guise of false environmentalism....For instance: Here in Wyoming, BLM office needed to staff up to handle requests for drilling permits to access massive energy reserves in coal beds for production of coal bed methane (natural gas). Newly appointed BLM staff decides there are birds (sage grouse) which additional drilling and exploration will harm, and site studies which buttress their denial of any furthre issuance of said drilling permits. An interstate highway runs right through the middle of the "danger zone" in question. Bird populations are actually shown to INCREASE with the inception of drilling, due to increased watersheds, access to water, and habitat. BLM dismisses these studies, and uses thier own from a University of Montana student who claims it is harming bird populations. BLM enlists the aid of liberal protestors from all over US and Rocky Mt. West. BLM and protesters spread false information lacking research and science. All drilling ceases. Land reverts back to wasteland. BLM issues permits for massive wind turbines to be placed in same area. Giant wind turbines proven to decimate birds in question. And as an aside, one coal bed methane well cannot be seen beyond 300 yards. One Giant wind Turbine can be seen for over 20 miles. One coal bed methane well produces energy equivilent to 10 Giant wind Turbines. That is only one tiny example in a tiny pocket of energy production occuring in the US. I could go on and on....
Thank you for the article, quite refreshing in a sea of lies, are you sure that was from Aspen? Don't the Hollywood geniuses hang out there?

The present administration is destroying our stability with their denial of our own energy sources.
