Thank you Obama & Lisa Jackson from the EPA. I know you really are supporting the “Green Economy” of the U.N. Agenda 21 and are putting in to place regulations to stifle energy production in the U.S.A. You should be doing everything possible to encourage energy production at home but rather you are in bed the U.N.. Your scheme of “The Wildlands Project” for America is just that, a pipe dream. The Rio +20 theme had to changed to the “Green Economy” and “Sustainable Developement” because your global warming scheme was finding it a tough sale. Even Mr. Sha admits in the spring 2011 retreat session that his “Green Economy” is not well defined yet but has been generating considerable debate. But Lisa & Barrak will enjoy the Rio +20 meetings in June 2012 and give their input I am sure. I know your 3 key messages will be that of; The Built Environment: Clean Energy and Urbanization; The Natural Environment: Ecosystems Managemeng and Rural Development; and The Institutional Environment: Modernizing Global Cooperation. This is from your press statement titled; Sustainable Development for the Next Twenty Years United States Views on Rio +20 (google this people) from Nov 2011 meeting in New York City. Governor Dalrymple, as a Republican I cannot believe you are allowing this, but I guess it goes to show that politicians are politicians. WAKE UP PEOPLE, WE ARE NOT HEADED IN A GOOD DIRECTION.

““We really feel like these rules are necessary to make sure the oil industry stays good stewards to the land,” Ritter said.”
The oil industry NEVER WAS “good stewards to the land”. In fact, if there’s an opposite to “good stewardship” in the dictionary, the picture used as a visual aid would be an oil derrick.
When the oil is gone, and nothing remains but the broken rock and fracking chemicals, there’d better be enough money in the oil field tax account to fix the ecological disasters the oil companies will leave behind.
First Guess: Reclaiming the land and water resources will cost more than we’ll ever see in tax revenue.
Second Guess: The oil companies will be sheltered and gone faster than we can sue them to pay for the reclamation.
