Administration Gives Conditional Approval for Shell to Drill in Arctic

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/12/us/white-house-gives-conditional-approval-for-shell-to-drill-in-arctic.html

So our own Change president has fallen into a black hole of oozing oil and the lasting loss of any possibility of heading off climate change and therefore the end of life on Earth.

Perhaps he has lost his mind. He has become criminal. My anger is astounding.

1. Of course he did. I bet they promised to be real careful, and then they all went out to dinner.

6. No Shock

Find some film of what he said he believed in and said he said he's try to do back when he first ran - and compare it to now. Was he lying to get in or has he lost his mind?

It's why Hillary's lefty shift is suspicious to me. Bernie has not shifted, I know what he's about, and I know he won't cater to Wall Street.

11. There could be some road blocks..

"Among the conditions of approval is the requirement that Shell obtain all necessary permits from other state and federal agencies, including permits to drill from the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and appropriate authorizations under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Another condition of approval prevents Shell from commencing drilling operations until all Biological Opinions under the Endangered Species Act have been issued and requires all operations under the plan comply with the terms and conditions included in those Biological Opinions."

Thanks for the link.

Thanks for nothing.

By the way, I'd avoid any shellfish from the Gulf.
