There is over ten billion barrels of safe, easy to recover oil of California's coasts and to leave it naturally seeping out of the ground creating onerous local air pollution is environmentally criminal.

"America could be energy self-sufficient within a decade if County, State and Congress eliminated the American energy blockade. This ongoing failure to develop America's oil and gas resources is costing the county state and federal governments hundreds of billions of dollars in royalties and taxes and consumers are paying double what they should pay for gasoline.

Opening America'sr domestic oil and gas resources, to responsible oil and gas development would produce more supply, lower gas prices, create greater US energy security, and lower taxes. As well as creating an influx of trillions in new income and excise taxes as well as creating millions of American jobs; prosperity here not there."

It doesn't pay to ship oil from Santa Barbara to Calcutta and it doesn't happen.

My company AOAG has offered to create an economic boom in Santa Barbara from new local offshore oil production;

The case for drilling is compelling:

1. $2.50 GASOLINE for Santa Barbara County residents and County vehicles
from AOAG production.
2. $2.50 GASOLINE for all hotel guests in Santa Barbara County.
3. County-wide, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) car conversions facilities.
4. $1.50 CNG for Santa Barbara and Coast residents for flexi-fuel
vehicles.
5. Substantial Annual Grants to environmental study groups and renewable
energy programs.
6. Significant decrease in County-wide Air pollution from lower natural
reservoir seepage.
7. Lower C02 emissions for the County and State of California.
8. Significantly reduce greenhouse gas methane emissions from offshore
gas seeps.
9. Much cleaner Santa Barbara beaches and oceans by reduction in beach
tar balls.
10. Increased local, State and National energy income streams, with
monies all staying inside America.
11. Provide Complete Santa Barbara energy self reliance and improve
America's energy security.
12. Significant high-paying local jobs boost.
13. Significant increased cash energy royalties to County of approximately
$250-500 million p.a. will improve the quality of life for all Santa
Barbara residents.
14. Special Proposed Community royalty payment from Bering Sea Gas imports
landings to fund FREE County-Wide clinics and a new FREE County
Hospital.
15. Lower-cost CNG for public transport-busses and vans, will enable
disadvantaged and senior citizens to travel more freely.
16. Natural Gas for County home heating and cooking at a 30% discount
to the prevailing rate.
17. Increased State and Federal royalties will help treasuries balance
their budgets.

Goleta officials in opposing oil production are voting for energy poverty and more air pollution for residents.

Last update: 3:00 a.m. EDT Sept. 17, 2008
LAS VEGAS, NV, Sep 17, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Arctic Oil & Gas Corp. (PINKSHEETS: AOAG) (351 million shares issued), a petroleum exploration company, is pleased to announce that the Company and partners proposed (40% AOAG equity) Santa Barbara OCS-State petroleum lease development project, on known oil accumulations containing between 250-500 million barrels oil.

The proposed Santa Barbara offshore oil and gas production would be significantly net-positive for the environment.

AOAG has offered significant energy and financial benefits to Santa Barbara County Residents as well as local, State and national treasuries. The case for drilling is compelling:

1. $2.50 GASOLINE for Santa Barbara County residents and County vehicles
from AOAG production.
2. $2.50 GASOLINE for all hotel guests in Santa Barbara County.
3. County-wide, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) car conversions facilities.
4. $1.50 CNG for Santa Barbara and Coast residents for flexi-fuel
vehicles.
5. Substantial Annual Grants to environmental study groups and renewable
energy programs.
6. Significant decrease in County-wide Air pollution from lower natural
reservoir seepage.
7. Lower C02 emissions for the County and State of California.
8. Significantly reduce greenhouse gas methane emissions from offshore
gas seeps.
9. Much cleaner Santa Barbara beaches and oceans by reduction in beach
tar balls.
10. Large new natural gas supplies from Bering Sea, landing via Santa
Barbara County, to lower America's C02 emissions from out of State
coal-fired power plants.
11. Increased local, State and National energy income streams, with
monies all staying inside America.
12. Provide Complete Santa Barbara energy self reliance and improve
America's energy security.
13. Significant high-paying local jobs boost.
14. Significant increased cash energy royalties to County of approximately
$250-500 million p.a. will improve the quality of life for all Santa
Barbara residents.
15. Special Proposed Community royalty payment from Bering Sea Gas imports
landings to fund FREE County-Wide clinics and a new FREE County
Hospital.
16. Lower-cost CNG for public transport-busses and vans, will enable
disadvantaged and senior citizens to travel more freely.
17. Natural Gas for County home heating and cooking at a 30% discount
to the prevailing rate.
18. Significant Increase in Local Property Values due to many of the
above benefits.
19. Increased State and Federal royalties will help treasuries balance
their budgets.

Technology has made drilling nearly risk-free and demand for energy is growing. According to the EIA, the U.S. will still need 47% more oil and 54% more natural gas by 2025.

On Goleta's Anti-Drilling Resolution Back to the Drawing Board

Posted on September 11 at 10:27 a.m.

THIS COUNCIL REPRESENTS A FEW SELFISH RICH PEOPLE, WHO DON'T CARE ABOUT THE POOR, HERE OR ABROAD.

'Buy America Energy' should be our focus for the future.
The world oil shortage is political, not geological.
In the U.S., the government prohibits drilling offshore, effectively blockading American companies from supplying oil to Americans so that foreigners can make obscene profits from our energy stupidity.

Low cost power is vital to an industrial economy, and we have ignored this vital infrastructure issue for 20 years or more. The entire economy and our communities are facing collapse because of the irrational ongoing attack on American Energy.

Our Modern Economy Still Needs Oil and Gas Today.
You all have to wake up and smell the energy roses that oil and gas represent today.
If the much maligned oil companies went on strike, within a month half the population would be dead;

LIFE WITHOUT HYDROCARBONS
Our entire modern society is build on fossil fuels. Without hydrocarbons fuel the United States would quickly revert to an early 19th century type of country. Except that we would have 10 times as many people and no way to distribute food to most of them.

Your elected officials and the environmental movement have let you down, destroyed your life and sold out your Country:.. and they don't even know it! They certainly won't admit it either.

Advocates for the continued American Energy Embargo are in the direct or unwitting employ of OPEC and Russia. These people should be had up on charges of economic treason, if not fired for anti-American activities, or gross incompetence.

To oppose developing America's energy supplies immediately is Anti-American and akin to treason.
American oil is all under an OPEC sponsored embargo compliments of County, State and Congress Embargos, which are also ruining the Santa Barbara air quality and beach environment.

Santa Barbara's beaches are heavily polluted with natural oil and tar seeps, which make the air unfit to breathe and the water unfit to swim in.

Its not pristine beaches "environmentalists" and County officials are protecting, its only OPEC's and big oil's profits. These people are traitors to their enviro-supporters and traitors to America.

Without hydrocarbons fuel you would soon be walking. You couldn't be driving cars, and it wouldn't do any good to call the maintenance or repair people because they wouldn't be able to get there, as they would be walking too.

Without hydrocarbons fuel people in hospitals would be dying faster, because they depend on electrical power and natural gas for warming to stay alive. But then stoppages would soon include water, food, civil authority, emergency services. And we would end up with a country with many, many people not surviving.

FUTURE CLEANER ENERGY NEED OIL AND GAS TODAY
We need to support the continued development of alternative and renewable sources of energy and to increase conservation. In the meantime, lifting the County, State and congressional embargo on oil and natural gas exploration in outer continental shelf waters, ANWR and Colorado oil shale is an absolute imperative if we are to rescue any sort of functioning economy. The high price of energy is bankrupting your household and your country right now.
50% of house sales in Santa Barbara County are foreclosures. The export of most of America's money to OPEC and Russia is absolutely going to destroy this economy and this country in the next five years and you are solely and collectively responsible.
Your elected officials and the environmental movement have let you down, destroyed your life and sold out your Country:.. and they don't even know it! They certainly won't admit it either.

On Gas Wells in Summerland?

Posted on September 1 at 8:52 a.m.

Santa Barbara could be the most prosperous County in America, if it allowed safe development of it's offshore oil and gas reserves.

We are offering Santa Barbara Residents $2.50 gasoline if they allow new production offshore. see www.strategicnine.com

AMERICAN OIL AND GAS IS GOOD FOR AMERICA
If you don't quickly develop American oil and gas resources, you, your friends and your country will be bankrupt within a decade.

Oil is still the fuel of the immediate future - you can bet on it! We must move forward to a future in which cleaner natural gas, electricity, and renewable energy fuels cars and heats homes. But this transformation will take 10-20 years. Yes we need to wean ourselves from a heavy dependence on foreign oil, but we must quickly replace foreign oil with local supplies to keep our country and economy safe.

Right now, the American oil embargo is breaking the backs of American consumers and the multi-trillion dollar domestic transportation industry infrastructure still dependent on fossil fuels.

Continuing the American oil embargo is unacceptable anti-social, Anti-American, treacherous behavior.
Change is urgently needed, or the American economy will soon disintegrate.

The United States is subsidizing a war against itself because of it's American Energy Embargo resulting in a dependence on foreign oil, a resource largely controlled by its enemies and resulting in the death of Americans in Iraq and elsewhere every week. Readers all likely know someone who has lost a relative in Iraq.
The OPEC-Russia-chavez oil cartel is not just looting the United States, but the whole world, and will accumulate over $1.5 trillion in net profits this year. At their current rate of take, OPEC-Russia will acquire enough cash to buy majority control of every leading company in the United States within six years. And you are voting into power the very American-energy-traitors who are doing this to you and your country.

This is a direct threat to American independence. "It's wrecking our economy," and you are treacherously or stupidly helping them by embargoing American Energy supplies.
OPEC loves American environmentalists, its making them rich. Big oil loves Enviro's and Democrats too because it enables them to pump less oil for more money thus higher profits.

The MMS oil lease bonus payments system, by charging billions in up-front lease bids, also keeps the smaller companies from getting access to local oil reserves and thus keeps the big-oil monopoly in place. And the Democrats encourages and applauds the process. Another reason why big oil loves the Democrats.

The naysayers are so wrong.

The new Santa Barbara OCS-State petroleum development project would reduce local fuel costs, have a daily send-out capacity of 100,000 BBL/day oil-gas. Enough to supply the daily needs of the entire Santa Barbara County as well as reduce imported oil needs for Southern California. www.strategicnine.com

On Santa Barbara Eyes Black Gold

Posted on August 22 at 1:26 p.m.

AMERICA IS FULL OF "ENERGY IDIOTS"

'Buy America Energy' should be our focus for the future.
We could have $2.50 gasoline from our own local supplies.
The American oil shortage is political, not geological.
In the U.S., the local, State and Federal governments prohibits drilling offshore, effectively blockading American companies from supplying oil to Americans so that foreigners can make obscene profits from our energy stupidity.
Half the home sales in America are foreclosures because we are sending all our money overseas for foreign oil, when it could be staying here creating millions of safe American oil and gas jobs.
The entire economy and our communities are facing collapse because of the irrational ongoing attack on American Energy.

Without hydrocarbons fuel you would soon be walking. You couldn't be driving cars, and it wouldn't do any good to call the maintenance or repair people because they wouldn't be able to get there, as they would be walking too.

ANWR: Could quickly replace 10% of America's oil imports.
OIL SHALE: There's 3 trillion barrels of oil in Shales in Colorado, The technology to remove the oil was developed back in the mid 1980s. This Area could supply 20-30% of America's oil needs within a decade, with modest environmental impacts. It only takes 3 barrels of water to make one barrel of shale-oil. It take 85 barrels of water to make one barrel of ethanol!
CALIFORNIA FACT; There is between 2-3 billion barrels of proven-probable barrels of oil within 20 miles of the Santa Barbara County shores alone.
See; http://www.strategicnine.com/santa-ba...
CALIFORNIA FACT; This area alone could produce 300,000 to 500,000 barrels a day for 10-20 years, replacing more than half of California's oil imports, while generating billions in County, State and federal royalties, and make Santa Barbara County the wealthiest in the nation.
NATURAL OIL SEEPS POLLUTION; The Santa Barbara County continues to suffer 6,000 tons per year or airborne pollution from natural oil-gas seeps and does not get a nickel in revenues or health benefits from natural oil seeps and instead continues bankrolling Americas competitors and enemies.
Change is urgently needed, or the American economy will soon disintegrate.
The OPEC-Russia-Chavez oil cartel is not just looting the United States, but the whole world, and will accumulate over $1.5 trillion in net profits this year. At their current rate of take, OPEC-Russia will acquire enough cash to buy majority control of every leading company in the United States within six years. And you are voting into power the very American-energy-traitors who are doing this to you and your country.
Its high time to Put American's Energy Supplies First.
Vote all the energy-idiots out of local state and federal governments.
