Trump removes obstacle to Great Lakes & ocean oil drilling

And on top of everything else negative in Wisconsin, and nationally, there's this
President Trump is repealing a controversial executive order drafted by former President Obama that was meant to protect the Great Lakes and the oceans bordering the United States.
In his own executive order signed late Tuesday, Trump put a new emphasis on industries that use the oceans, particularly oil and natural gas drilling, while also mentioning environmental stewardship.

Oil drilling platforms would be a great addition to the Lake Michigan shoreline off Milwaukee's east side, no?

I am sure if you pump enough toxic chemicals mixed with Wisconsin silica sand into deep shafts in Lake Superior & Michican, there's some OIL. Let the deep water frackin' off the shores of Wisconsin beaches begin!

Once Foxconn starts drawing a gazillion gallons of water a day, these will no longer be deep fracking wells. The dry lake beds will be like the oil fields in Saudis Arabia. If we frack the sh!t out of them, surely crude will bubble out.
