Hot air is not energy

The president said we are producing more energy from public (aka government-controlled) lands than anytime in recent memory.

However:

Crude-oil production? Down from 739 million barrels to 646 million barrels in FY 2011.

Natural-gas production? Down from 5,415 billion cubic feet (Bcf) to 4,859 billion cubic feet (Bcf) in FY 2011.

Natural-gas plant liquids? Down from 115 million barrels to 111 million barrels in FY 2011

Coal production? Down from 478 million short tons to 470 million short tons in FY 2011.

So I’m wondering:  Just exactly what kind of energy is he thinking we ARE producing from them.  The only energy increase that I can tell of is the increase in hot air from DC.  Or is there something drastically wrong with the president’s memory?
