Biden admin terminates more oil leases issued by Trump

As gas prices soar across the country, undoubtedly hampering the travel plans of millions of Americans as summer approaches, President Joe Biden’s administration, unsurprisingly, dealt another blow to America’s energy independence.

According to The Hill, the Biden administration announced this week that leases issued by former President Donald Trump’s administration for oil drilling in the Alaska-based Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) have been suspended, pending further environmental reviews.

Opponents of Trump’s idea to let controlled and safe drilling happen in the nearly 20 million square acres Alaskan wildlife reserve have spent years expressing concern about the possible negative impact on local wildlife, even suggesting that drilling activities could contribute to climate change.

The official order to suspend the leases, which were issued in 2017 under Trump, was signed on Tuesday by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, citing the current analysis’s “failure to adequately analyze a reasonable range of alternatives.”

Critics of the move to begin drilling at ANWR were thrilled with the announcement, including National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, who praised the Biden administration for making the move.

“President Biden believes America’s national treasures are cultural and economic cornerstones of our country and he is grateful for the prompt action by the Department of the Interior to suspend all leasing pending a review of decisions made in the last administration’s final days that could have changed the character of this special place forever,” McCarthy said.

The new environmental analysis that will take place could add further restrictions to drilling activities or, as many environmental activists hope for, a total nullification of the leases.

Though the decision to follow through on his campaign promise of keeping drilling rigs out of ANWR was appreciated by many, the news comes on the heels of the Biden administration announcing its support for the Trump-approved, ConocoPhillips’ Willow drilling project in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, which angered environmentalists.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) had previously estimated that up to 11.8 billion barrels of oil lie beneath the Alaskan coastal plain where ANWR is located.

  7. Exactly!! I have always said that the Earth/Space Science we were taught – that climate is controlled by the sun – comes in handy…..and as you state, if anything, it is getting cooler, not hotter. When we have NO sun…that is when we REALLY need to worry. – Earth/Space Science 101

  8. These people have way over stepped their bounds. This evil has to stop. They have no right to ruin this country.

  9. Oh well. It is just another step toward destroying America and the citizens. Did you really expect more from him? I didn’t. Miss President Trump yet? I do.

  10. Its time we the people the real patriots start to physically take this country back from the Democratic/communist before they completely ruin it. If that means rebellion and fight so be it . The second American Revolution.

  11. Impeach him NOW. ALL of them and lets get back to AMERICA. They have no idea what they are truly doing. Go home and let America be our great nation as we have always been.

  12. These things are directly from the Communist Manifesto. There never was a pandemic, yet gullible people accepted their lies. There is no global warming! There is overwhelming real scientific proof. But the powers that be are fighting to keep these things from the public. Our climate is controled by Solar activity. The earth has actually cool down since the late 90s by 1.88 degrees F. This global warming was started to make several people rich. One in particular, Al Gore. We absolutely must stop believing anything coming out of Washington DC.

  13. We the American people must remove all Democrats in the White House, House and Senate ASAP ! Democrats are not Americans, they never been Americans and never will be Americans.

  14. So he commends Russia’s pipeline and is destroying our oil independence. Is he collaborating with Russia?

    1. Biden should have been impeached the day after he entered White House. He does not belong there and is not capable of doing the job of president. He is destroying us little by little each and every day he is allowed to remain. He has to go for the sake of the country and Kamala with him. We need a new special fair election to correct this terrible wrong.
