Say Goodbye to Arctic Drilling … for now

Big news from the Obamatron

President Barack Obama will use his executive authority to permanently block offshore drilling in large swaths of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, the White House announced Tuesday.

It is a policy wonk’s way of saying “Up yours Donald!” And it is a way to create a legacy that Trump will have to deal with. Trump may take steps to undo this, but he will need to expend political capital to do so.

It is finally a bit of good news for humanity! Perhaps we will wake up to climate change fast enough to avoid its worst effects. The race is on and the load of poop in our pants that is Donald Trump is about to slow us down as we run that race.

Stay tuned!
