How much offshore oil money do these groups get?
AH!... but WHO funds the environmental group in question?..
Soros or some other left wing enabler?..
Usually its not about the environment..
ITS ABOUT POLITICS...
Before groups like Defenders of Wildlife, Center for Biological Diversity, Natural Resources Defense Council, Earthjustice, Gulf Restoration Network, Florida Wildlife Federation, and Sierra Club are allowed to object to an oil project, they should be required to show when they have ever favored any oil project anywhere.
The fact is that they oppose any project that is not an OPEC project. They will produce reams of paper detailing their objections to whatever project you’ve got in mind but the short version is simply this: its not OPEC, and they aren’t for it. OPEC projects are good for the earth. Non-OPEC projects have to be smothered in the crib where ever you find them.
Granted, once Palin is elected she’ll have plenty to do, but I hope she makes it impossible for these communist front groups to have any standing whatsoever. I’d prefer they were outlawed entirely, but I’ll take what I can get.
If we get all 3 back, Legislate that domestic/offshore drilling/mining for natural resources is a matter of national security and attempts to stop it are treasonous.
Enough of this crap.
"As a result of the uncertainties surrounding the offshore drilling moratorium, we are actively seeking international opportunities to keep our rigs fully employed," Dickerson said. "We greatly regret the loss of U.S. jobs that will result from this rig relocation."
It is not just Gulf operations that are being effected either.
Let's not leave the refineries out.
Then there are the land-based oil leases.

How come THEY are never found to be ‘WITHOUT STANDING’?.........
Do environmental groups ever do anything besides sue?
these assholes, AND the EPA need to be shut down, they are not concerned about the environment, they are enemies of American progress.
Will they sue to protest BHO-Brazil offshore deal?
Can a dead lawyer still litigate
Anybody else looking forward to the day reality doesn’t tolerate groups like this?
Well, who couldn’t smell that one coming?
The Feds really should stop funding these people; they’re shooting themselves in both feet.
