Here is more about the Democrat's desire to ban hydraulic fracturing to release oil and gas from deep underground shale deposits. The usual suspects appear to be the hand in the Obama sock-puppet. George Soros has a lot of financial interests that would be harmed by development of the natural gas resources in the United States. Soros and the Democrats also are interested in reducing energy consumption in the US, and cheap gas is a threat to that initiative. Obama has said he supports reducing CO2 emissions in the US by 80% from 2003 levels by 2050. On a per capita basis, that would put US energy consumption back to the level experienced in 1910. Looks like no more air conditioning or cars for ordinary folk. Of course Obama thinks that windmills and solar cells would take up the slack, which is highly unlikely. Nuclear power could take up a lot of the slack, but Democrats don't like that either. Obama seems intent on achieving his desire, as revealed by some of his aides, to manage the decline of the United states.
