Tom Pyle is the president of the Institute for Energy Research.
The Obama administration is playing fast and loose with both the facts and the policy rationale for restricting private sector investment in America's enormous energy prospects. Even worse, the administration is failing to abide by their moral and legal responsibilities to foster the economic welfare of the citizens they are obliged to serve. Not only has the administration erected ruinous regulatory barriers to energy development, they have also now revealed their anti-fossil fuel paranoia by refusing to provide access to our abundant resources that underlie federal offshore lands.
