PowerPoint Presentation Medicine For Doc Hastings

By Andrew Ivey | Presentations

Dec 07

If it wasn’t for the water the matter of offshore drilling and hydraulic fracturing would be a pretty dry subject for most of us. But for some of us they can be truly alarming–especially for those living around the Gulf of Mexico.

But it’s a subject that’s got Republican Congressman Doc Hastings pretty animated. His PowerPoint presentation is the modern equivalent of a legislator’s land grab. It’s certainly very dry.

His presentation to other Republicans argues that his committee–the House Natural Resources Committee–should be tasked with responsibilities for offshore drilling and hydraulic fracturing instead of the Energy and Commerce committee.

Clear?

Good. Because his PowerPoint presentation is far from clear about his exact intentions.

In fact it has to count as one of the very worst PowerPoint presentations ever to be inflicted upon an audience…too many words and too few pictures.

It’s a pity because there are many who’d argue that regulatory oversight of offshore drilling and hydraulic fracturing should be a more pressing concern for all of us.
