Biden Suspends New Oil and Gas Drilling Permits on Federal Lands

Hey, I remember this. January 21, 2021.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Biden administration announced Thursday a 60-day suspension of new oil and gas leasing and drilling permits for U.S. lands and waters, as officials moved quickly to reverse Trump administration policies on energy and the environment.


The suspension, part of a broad review of programs at the Department of Interior, went into effect immediately under an order signed Wednesday by Acting Interior Secretary Scott de la Vega. It follows Democratic President Joe Biden’s campaign pledge to halt new drilling on federal lands and end the leasing of publicly owned energy reserves as part of his plan to address climate change.




The administration’s announcement drew outrage from Republicans and some industry trade groups. They said limiting access to publicly owned energy resources would mean more foreign oil imports, lost jobs and fewer tax revenues.

    Oh, but it’s Putin’s fault, just like it is Putin’s inflation.
    Senile Joe and his ilk think you are stupid believe it. And certainly, people like Sheeple Le Roi and those others with weak brains will believe it.

    BJ’s lease sale suspension was overturned by a court in June, 2021 forcing sales to be made. Of course, the usual E-wackos piled on and the overturn was over overturned just six weeks ago.

    The US, with Biden in the Main Seat, is headed down the path of Germany, which today shot itself in both feet and pushed itself off a cliff.
