Trump Opens Nearly All US Waters to Offshore Drilling

High energy.

The Trump administration will allow new offshore oil and gas drilling in nearly all United States waters, it announced Thursday. The plan would give the energy industry broad access to drilling rights in most parts of the outer continental shelf, including Pacific waters near California, Atlantic waters near Maine and the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

The proposal lifts a ban on drilling, imposed by President Barack Obama in his final days in office, that protected more than 100 million offshore acres along the Arctic and Eastern Seaboard. Such a reversal deals a serious blow to Mr. Obama’s environmental legacy and signals that the Trump administration is nowhere near done unraveling the environmental restrictions of its predecessor in an effort to promote domestic energy production....

"We're embarking on a new path for energy dominance in America, particularly on offshore," Ryan Zinke, the interior secretary, said Thursday as he unveiled the plan. "This is a clear difference between energy weakness and energy dominance. We are going to become the strongest energy superpower."

Trump may not be a "real conservative," whatever that means anymore. (It seems to mean rather little.) But he's doing things that the establishment-credentialed "real conservatives" would never, ever do.
