Mitt's Meaningless Campaign For Energy Independence
From Huffington Post
Last week Mitt Romney released his plan for energy independence. His idea is that over the next decade or so North American oil production could nearly double from 15 to 28 million barrels a day. As Ashley Parker reported in theNew York Times, Romney figures if we can increase drilling it will eventually equal the amount of fuel we use:
“The net net of all this, as you can see, is by 2020, we”re able to produce somewhere between 28 million barrels per day of oil and we won”t need to buy any oil from the Middle East or Venezuela or anywhere else where we don”t want to,” Mr. Romney said.
