Battle for the Arctic?
Concerns US ignoring resource-rich region
The Liberal Media, including
their buds on the night-time shows, had much fun when Sarah Palin said:
" I can
from my home"!
They were of course
ignorantly oblivious to the implications of her statement including Russia’s
rise back to a position of power and influence and the vast riches of minerals
and oil and access to and through the North West Passage.
The confluence of Russia, Norway,
Canada and the US in and around the Arctic
has become of interest because of economic and dominance issues.
Norway has significant dibs on the Arctic and Northwest Passage due to early exploration and claims
established by Roald Engelbregt Gravning Amundsen.
In 1926, he was the first expedition leader to be recognized without dispute as having reached the North Pole.
He is also known as the first to traverse the Northwest
Passage (1903–06). (50 years before significant man-made CO2)
The following two blog items were foreboding and
right-on target highlighting the Obama administrations national energy policy

Preparing For Oil War in The Arctic
The Norwegian Barents
Observer reports that on 8/1/09 The Norwegian Operational Command Headquarters
will open in Reitan, outside Bodo in extreme northern Norway.
This makes Norway the first
country to move its military command leadership to the Arctic.
The Norwegian Government has given the approval for the Goliat Oil Project in
the Barents Sea. The field is estimated to
have 173 million barrels of oil and is expected to reach a peak production of
about 100,000 barrels of oil plus natural gas per day. Eni plans to start
production in 2013, and keep the field running for at least 15 years. It will be the second offshore development in
the icy waters of the Barents Sea that Norway
shares with its neighbor Russia.
The Norwegians are also major players in Cuba’s
oil exploration within 70 miles of the Florida Keys
So while Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are busy taxing and throttling our development
of our domestic oil and gas facilities Norway, who is currently the third
largest exporter of oil, is busy developing and expanding their massive
facilities for the 21st century.
In addition to the Barents Sea development, Norway
has claimed the vast oil reserves under the Northwest Passage of the Arctic based on the explorations of Roald Amundsen.
a hoot! They gave Al Gore the Nobel Prize for convincing the world that burning
oil is destroying the world. Isn’t that a gigantic piece of hypocrisy and
bait-and-switch that most of the world has swallowed.
Reminds one of the medals they (the same folks) bestowed on Jimmy Carter for
establishing peace between Israel
and the Arabs.

Canada And Norway Say Goodbye To Obama’s Energy Misdirection
The world adulations for the new Prince of Change have morphed into
disappointment with Obama’s misdirected energy malpractice. Our long-term
friends and business partners have now partnered with our long term adversaries
at our expense and future growth and development.
Norway has joined a
partnership with Russia to
develop massive oil and gas fields offshore deep in the Arctic
Ocean. So much for worrying about the Arctic Ice Sheet!
So much for partnering with the US;
and so much for concerns about “fossil fuels and AGW global warming”
Nobel Prize to Gore wasn’t really about concerns for fossil fuels causing
global warming after all. Too bad Obama is still stuck in that rut.
Canada, our long term
friendly neighbor and close trading partner has now formed strong economic ties
Since 2009 China
has invested $13 BILLION into Canadian companies and projects and is poised to
spend Billions more.
After Obama’s rejection of the Keystone pipeline from Canada to the US
refineries in Texas, Canada has
started a major pipeline to Pacific ports to service Chinese tankers.
It should now be clear to the most naïve persons that the Obama-Gore Jihad
against our fossil fuel infrastructure is misdirected, dangerous and crippling
to our future economic well being and standard-of-living.
