Unhappy

If we read between the lines does this mean that oil and gas companies will be allowed to drill just about anywhere off shore they want because they are going to pay royalaties to help clean up the oceans? Hey maybe we can get developers to pay royalaties on the profits they make developing all our wet lands. Those royalaties could be use to help save the wet land they just paved under.

GW speech in Maine was such BS yesterday. He says he has created what was it 3 million acres of wet lands in the time he has come to office. What he didn't say was that we lost over 20 million acres of wet lands due to poor policy that allows developers pretty much a free ride to fill it all in.
