    Whether the White House is occupied by a Democrat or a Republican, OR an Independent, BP, Exxon-Mobil, et al are too powerful for any administration to restrain them.

    Beginning with Nixon, every president has promised to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. Until Obama, who says he wants to stop Americans from using any fossil fuels. With his determined campaign against oil, Obama has increased US production by only 1 million barrels per day per year since 2010. Were it not for Obama, the US would have returned to its rightful place: from the 1890s until 1945, the US produced the majority of all the world’s oil.


    In 2011, the US produced 11% of the world’s oil. In 2014, after Obama’s war against oil, the US only produced 15% of the world’s oil. So Obama has really damaged the US oil industry.

    Most Alaskans call the national park McKinley and the mountain Denali.

    I think your friends, the Coke Brothers, have been doing just fine. In fact the Keystone Pipeline benefits them, and a bunch of Canadians, but relatively few American. All at the very real risk to American landscape. But what the hell so long as the “US Oil Industry” (wink, wink at the Kochs) prospers, all is good in your book.

    I have always referred to the mountain as Denali as that is what I heard it called by my mom, who learned the name from her mom, a school teacher in Tanana during the time the prospector from Ohio thought it would be a good idea to name the mountain after Mr. McKinley, who supported the gold standard.
    President Obama merely had the correct name incorporated into the federal maps, Alaska maps already had the correct name.
    .
    But McKinley Park is where I tell the tourists to go for the best view of Denali. It must have been opposites day when those names were assigned because you are correct, most folks I know call the area McKinley Park and the mountain Denali. Old habits.

    And we would be dying from the environmental destruction perpetrated by those same companies, very much like China where the government officials care only about their own survival, not that of the country or the working people. Wait a minute, who does that sound like here?

    Look, when a white man says something like “this mountain is called this” or “this is our land now”, you don’t get to say anything different, because manifest destiny and American exceptionalism and so on.

    Denali is the mountain and the National Park.


    Notable in Alaska is that oil revenues are down to the state, as a matter of DEMAND, not production capacity. Offshore drilling in the Arctic is pretty stupid considering that so far Shell has crashed two for two on the oil rigs they attempted to send out.


    “Moby Duck” the book points out that plasti ducks dumpted in the Pacific, made their way over the arctic passage and down the east coast of the U.S., what do you think an oil spill will do???

    Had a similar issue with the main boulevard feeding the Palm Springs airport. It is mostly tribal land, people got used to Taquitz rather than McCallum.

    So Obama’s war against US produced oil has had the same result as his war against the middle class. They have both been successful.

    I should really stop calling him incompetent…
