They have failed by trying to scare people into using less and paying more for energy with the global warming hoax. Now they're using the bullying and extortion tactics of the EPA and The Department Of The Interior, all while circumventing Congress and the Constitution. Some call that treason.

Destroying America by Denying Access to Energy
Posted: 22 Jan 2012 08:46 AM PST

Our vital transportation sector and all others that utilize petroleum-based products will suffer, too.
