Obama cancels proposed EPA ozone regulations

September 2, 2011

Given the state of employment in the nation today – and the way it acts as a noose slowly strangling his re-election chances – this was probably the only decision he could make.

Watch for him to soon endorse the State Department decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, perhaps as part of his much anticipated address to Congress next week.

As I have posted before (for example, here, here and here), I believe that unleashing the fortune beneath America’s feet – the massive energy reserves of our continent’s fossil fuel storehouse – is the surest bet to reviving the economy.  Unlike other pro-energy boosters, however, I actually do believe that the environmental lobby makes many sound points, that they are a powerful and important (and well organized) constituency, and that, at some point, they are going to have to be paid back for these decisions.
