Talking Michael Moore Trolls Trump By Promising to Frack Near Mar-a-Lago

Quote:
Following this week’s announcement by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke of a draft plan to open up 90% of U.S. waters to offshore oil and gas drilling, Moore said he would frack off the coast of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, FL, starting after Labor Day—just in time for his new TV show Live from the Apocalypse to hit the airwaves on TNT.
Quote:
“I’ve already got the rig,” Moore tweeted on Saturday, “a beautiful Halliburton G-0008 fracking system with a monster Caterpillar engine!”


Quote:
“And any spills - we’re going to let the ppl of Florida keep whatever they collect 4 free!” he added.
Quote:
In addition to local residents, someone else who probably wouldn’t be happy with Moore’s threat is FL Governor Rick Scott, despite that he’s a Trump supporter and climate change denier whose administration once banned the use of the terms “climate change,” “global warming,” and “sustainability” at Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection.
Quote:
In a statement following Zinke’s announcement, the governor said he opposes the administration’s offshore drilling proposal, and he asked to “immediately meet with Secretary Zinke to discuss the concerns I have with this plan and the crucial need to remove Florida from consideration.”
Quote:
What Scott could possibly be concerned about is a mystery, considering the GOP loves to argue that the Trump administration is simply removing burdensome Obama–era regulations that hamper economic growth, job creation, and energy independence.
Quote:
Curiously, Scott isn’t the only Republican politician concerned about the proposal. GOP Sen. Susan Collins, from Maine, also tweeted her opposition to the plan, saying, “I continue to oppose efforts to open Maine’s coast to drilling, which poses significant risk to marine and coastal resources, our economy, and our way of life. I oppose the Department of the Interior’s draft plan.”
Quote:
This is the same Republican senator who voted in favor of the GOP tax overhaul, which along with giving massive tax breaks to corporations and the extremely wealthy, also opened Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling.
Quote:
Maybe Moore’s fracking rig could head to Maine next.

I love Michael Moore; he's a true American.

As part of the hypocrisy (I know...Obvious), Ted Kennedy, monster advocate of alternative energy, spent years blocking wind turbines near one of homes...

I don't QUITE remember Moore (or the media) taking him to task for it...

Kennedy tries to halt windmills
