Rick notes that…

US Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced today his intention to shelve plans passed on the final business day of the Bush administration to open much of the U.S. coast to oil drilling, including 130 million acres off California’s coast from Mendocino to San Diego.

To those of you from the oil and gas industry, I pledge that you will have a seat at the table in this Administration. I assure you that you will play an important role in helping us meet our nation’s energy needs. But President Obama and I believe that we need to be honest about our energy future. A “drill only” approach – onshore or offshore – is not enough.
Ken Salazar, Sect. of the Interior

The Obaminstration bringin’ it.
