Because the reality of these national "monuments" is not the wealth of their majesty in the eyes of the beholders, but the wealth under the feet of the beholders. When vast tracts are found to contain enough mineral wealth to impact the global cost of that commodity—like oil and natural gas—the princes of industry need to find a way too eliminate the total sum of that newly found wealth from the "recorded" global inventory of available oil reserves. When it cannot be harvested, according to the rules established by the global elite, it technically isn't available. That is why the bureaucratic oil and gas beancounters insist that Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves with 2,980 billion barrels, Saudi Arabia with 2,670 billion barrels, Canada with 1,790 billion barrels and the United States with 210 billion barrels. According to the oil bean counters, 56% of all known oil reserves are in the Muslim Mideast, with 16% in North America—withh most of that found in Canada (with Alaska construed in those estimates as "Canada"). The three most recent oil and natural gas finds are in the United States, Alaska and along the Marianas Trench. The single largest oil find in the history of man is at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. That oil has been claimstaked by Exxon-Mobil in a joint IPO with China Oil. But the largest oil and natural gas deposits found thus far are in the United States. The known oil reserves along the North Slope of Alaska and throughout the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge [ANWR] —and in areass about to be seized by the Dept. of the Interior— would supply 100% of the induustrial and consumer needs of the United States for over 300 years without the United States buying one barrel of oil or one cubic foot of natural gas from any other nation on Earth.
The princes of industry and the barons of banking want the American people to believe we are dependent on foreign oil because we don't have enough domestic oil to survive without a little oil from our friends. That, of course is a blatant, bald-face lie that only a politician could spew with a straight face to justify buying oil from our enemies. Taking the oil under the continent's "national parks" and "national monuments" into consideration, the oil reserves in North America exceed the oil reserves in the Mideast.
And since the other lie, spewed by the oil industry long before Sinclair Oil put a dinosaur on their trademark logo, is that crude oil is a "fossil fuel" created by decayed dinosaurs and rotted fauna has now been proved to be a myth. We know that oil is not a finite resource. It is manufactured deep in the bowels of the Earth by the planet. Peak oil was a hypothesis formulated by Dr. Marion King Hubert, a Shell oil geologist. The myth of "peak oil" originated in the 1950s by Hubert who calculated that, based on the known global reserves (at that time), that the oil wells in the non-OPEC countries would dry up between 2010 and 2015, and the oil reserves in the OPEC nations (the Muslim countries and Venezuela) would begin to dry up around 2030. Clearly that never happened because oil is not a finite resource. It self-replenishes from deep in the bowels of the Earth. Yet the oil industry, which has all the money they need to perpetuate the myth, continues to perpetuate the myth. Because the oil industry privately understands that oil is manufactured by the planet itself, deep within the bowels of Earth, that 's why the Russians have been sinking 30,000 to 40,000 feet deep wells for the last 30 years.
But even though the planet has disproved Hubert's theory—which is still known as Hubert's Peak—callinling oil a finite fossil fuel still works for the Seven Sisters because that helps the oil industry drive up the price of crude oil without too many repercussions from lawmakers. Oil is one of the most plentiful resources on Earth. Left to the free market, oil would be $20 per barrel—or lesss. That's what happens under the law of supply and demand.
Which is why the oil industry needed a little help from their friends to remove the excess availability of oil from the "global inventory." How best to accomplish that? In the United States? Convert oil lands into national parks or national monuments. In fact, in Salazar's guidelines for converting "Wild Lands" into "managed lands," mandates that any mineral wealth under the lands seized must be withdrawn from mineral entry. The lands must be closed to leasing, or allowing leasing under special circumstances with a special waiver. Mineral material sales are excluded.
Exclude commercial permits for commercial or personal-use wood cutting. In other words, the designation of "Wild Lands" will inhibit the ability of independent oil explorers to search, for or sink test wells in this growing number of designated areas, at a time when common sense dictates that we remove all barriers to domestic oil exploration, domestic oil drilling and increased oil refining. And on top of that, we need to repeal every nonsensical law on the books that requires—or encourages with a monetary award—converting fo food sources to energy when we need to keep food affordable...and plentiful.
Placing more and more public land off limits to oil development specifically to prevent independent drillers from harvesting the oil this nation desperately needs is not only ludicrous, those in Congress who have allowed it to happen need to be removed from office by impeachment or recall and place in trial in federal court for malfeasance of office. Presidential Executive Orders, Presidential Proclamations, Presidential Decision Directives are not binding as law on anyone—not even thee employees of the Executive Branch. They are "advisories" from the boss of the Executive Branch to his employees. Nothing more. The President of the United States has no legislative or judicial authority under the Constitution. He can't write law. He can't adjudicate punishment for violating laws. And, more important, Executive Branch bureaucrats who are elected by no one have no authority whatsoever by the stretch of anyone's imagination, to "write law." Congress writes the laws. All of them. No other body in the US government—not even the federall court system—has the constitutional prerogative to write law. The judiciiary weighs the application of law, and has the authority to vacate a law, but they lack the legal prerogative to rewrite them to make them "fit" the evolving needs of society—even though they do it all the time. Exectuve Orders and Secretarial Orders, in other words, are just so much "who shot John" unless Congress enacts the presidential or secretarial wish list into law. That generally doesn't happen because the wish list is usually something members of Congress would get fired for if they enacted it.
The question is, why is Congress—on both sides of the aisle—not screaming in a voice loud enough to bee heard on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue for the latest Obama land grab? It is, after all, their power Obama has usurped. And this at a time when Congress should be reducing its dependence on foreign oil. With no one in Congress publicly complaining, no one is sounding the alarm. Nor is the media in the United States talking about a new peer-reviewed paper published by Swedish geophysicist Nils-Axel Morner that warns the world that between 2040-2050 we will be in a new major "solar minimum"—a new Little Ice Age like the one the world experienced between 1350 AD and 1850 AD.
If you recall, the world is theoretically moving away from oil, gas and coal because, according to Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth, "fossil fuels" cause global warming. So, as we continue to "board-up" America's oil, coal and natural gas industries, the social progressive watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) who control policy in the United States, have succeeded in perpetuating the global warming myth to such a degree that the truth about global cooling never makes it to your morning newspaper or TV's evening news.
Even though, since the embarrassing UN Summit On Global Warning during a series of blizzards in 2009 that took place in Copenhagen, Denmark that kept scores of global warming attendees from reaching the conference, the ecowackos now refer to global warming as climate change as they pretend their computer models that show the world is heating up when it is actually cooling are still correct by blaming the newest findings that the world is now cooling on—you guessed it—global warming.
That not only justifies Cap & Trade regulations which penalize the industrial world for global warming—which specifically is caused by solar flares on the Sun—but it justiifies using taxpayer dollars to fund private companies (donors to the campaigns of Congressmen, Senators and Presidents) to find alternatives to "fossil fuel" energy sources as the government engages in the most massive land grab in the history of mankind. As the Obama Administration speeds up the land grab in the American West, and erases known oil and gas reserves from the US inventory, it replaces natural resources with costly environmentally neutral pseudo-resources that will never live up to the promises of the same ecoalarmists who, in 1933 stole America's gold and silver-backed money and replaced it with worthless scrip. You would think, by this time, the American people would have realized that whenever government pulls out the walnut shells, the politicians are about to steal real wealth and replace it with something very costly, and very artificial. It will always cost the consumer more and deliver less. For example, the latest environmental energy scheme that is supposed to replace fossil fuel energy (now safely tucked away under the mantle of environmental correctness) is the US government is partially subsidizing a project through an Australian company, EnviroMission, which has a contract to supply alternate energy to the Southern California Public Power Authority.
EnviroMission is building two 2,400 solar towers in western Arizona, between the towns of Parker and Quartzsite in La Paz County. The solar tower will heat air in a 4-square mile greenhouse and force it up the chimney where turbines will convert the heated air into electricity. The tower will use a 4-square mile greenhouse to heat the air and direct it into the concrete chimney. As the hot air rises, the chimney spins turbines to make electricity. Each tower will cost between $750 million to $1 billion dollars. To put the cost-benefit ratios in perspective natural gas energy plants cost $1,003 per kwh and coal plants cost , $3,167 per kwh to operate. The solar chimney? After all, it simply heats air and sends it up a chimney. The cost? $4,755 per kwh Fossil fuel plants operate at a peak capacity of about 90%. The solar chimney voltaic plants? At about 25%. Its 5-times as expensive as a natural gas energy plant, and only a quarter as efficient.
But the Land Grabbers who steal the oil, natural gas and coal because—in their view—it promoteotes global warming, are creating what will be a catastrophic problem in two to three decades as a new Little Ice Age reverses the open passages around Greenland and descends like the icy fingers of a glacial fist on North America and Northern Europe. At that time, billions of people, trying to survive what they thought was a prehistoric calamity, will cry out for cheap energy.
Only, it won't exist. Fearful of global warming even as the planet cools, the watermelons of the world (politicians and environmentalists who are green on the outside and communist red on the inside) will scramble to find more ineffective alternative sources of energy, expanding the conversion of food crops into energy sources as the new third world in the northern hemispheres of America and Europe cries for relief from the rapidly escalating price of grain, and the diminishing supply of gasoline. But the left, which still believes in the Flat Earth Theory, also apparently still believes the sun revolves around Earth. The left is still equally convinced that Hubert's Peak is real, and that the world' diminishing supply of crude has passed Hubert's Hump.

When the princes of industry are convinced that the oil in the Mideast, in South America, Southeast Asia, the former Soviet Union and its former "satellite-stans" have depleted their oil reserves, they will swap the US government wetlands in Georgia, Florida, or Mississippi for oil or natural gas-rich lands in Arizona, Montana or Alaska. You see, the government's Land Grab is really a land swap that will take place sometime down the road when the princes of industry and barons or banking and business are ready to take back the world's most important commodity at a time when our enemies no longer possess either oil or natural gas. The only problem is, that day will never come because our planet still manufactures "fossil fuel" faster than we can use it. No thanks to the dinosaurs.
