U. S. Oil Production to Reach Record Levels

So Why Does Trumpie and the GOP Want to Do Off Shore And Protected Lands Drilling?

If one is not cognizant of current events, that is, if one does not read or listen or even both to educate himself one lives in a world of ignorance. Such would seem to be the case with Donnie. He decided to open up the coast line to oil drilling. Well not in Florida because it is unpopular and he wants to help Republicans, but elsewhere. And the GOP tax bill opens up an Arctic Wildlife refuge for drilling.

But what about this? From the WSJ.

U.S. Oil Output Expected to Surpass Saudi Arabia, Rivaling Russia for Top Spot

IEA in its monthly report says U.S. output will likely top an all-time high

So why expand drilling to areas that are environmentally sensitive? Well, it is probably fake news but the answer would seem to be that Republicans just cannot pass up a chance to destroy part of the environment in order to make a buck. After all, let future generations clean up the mess.
