Ever heard these whoppers?
“You can’t drill for natural gas without drilling for oil.”
“Almost 80% of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) is already open to exploration.”
“Offshore natural gas production won’t affect domestic prices for 7-10 years.”
Most of these came up during the debate over the Peterson Amendment this week. And, you’ll even hear them repeated in the mainstream media (MSM) from time-to-time. Only problem is, they ain’t so.
Here’s a link to a great “Fact vs. Fiction” piece put out by Chris Tucker, Rep. Peterson’s communications guy and all-around warrior. You’ll see these whoppers and others debunked therein.
