    Not even two weeks in and the Biden administration is being sued.

    Killing jobs, pissing off its constituents, causing more damage to the
    climate instead of helping it ... this is Obama 2.0. LOL

    Biden Administration Sued for Halting Oil, Gas Leasing on Federal Lands

    By Jack Phillips
    January 27, 2021

    The Biden administration was sued on Jan. 27 over its executive order to
    halt oil and gas leasing on federal lands and waters.

    The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in Wyoming by the
    Western Energy Alliance, a group representing fossil fuel producers
    on federal lands. They say President Joe Biden exceeded his authority
    with the recent order.

    "The law is clear. Presidents don't have authority to ban leasing on
    public lands. All Americans own the oil and natural gas beneath public
    lands, and Congress has directed them to be responsibly developed on their
    behalf," Alliance President Kathleen Sgamma said in a statement,
    according to The Washington Times. "Drying up new leasing puts future
    development as well as existing projects at risk. President Biden cannot
    simply ignore laws in effect for over half a century."

    The executive order, Sgamma said, violates the Mineral Leasing Act, the
    National Environmental Policy Act, and the Federal Lands Policy and
    Management Act.

    The lawsuit argues that the administration's suspension of the federal oil
    and gas leasing program is "an unsupported and unnecessary action that is
    inconsistent with the Secretary's statutory obligations" and is "both
    arbitrary and capricious."

    The Biden executive order sets up a "pause on entering into new oil and
    natural gas leases on public lands or offshore waters to the extent
    possible" and will launch a "rigorous review of all existing leasing and
    permitting practices related to fossil fuel development on public lands
    and waters," according to the White House.

    The White House said the move is an attempt to "tackle the climate
    crisis."

    Republicans and industry leaders said the order would harm the U.S.
    economy and result in thousands of job losses.

    Dan Naatz of the Independent Petroleum Association of America said in a
    separate statement: "Do not be fooled, this is a ban [on drilling]. The
    Biden administration's plan to obliterate the jobs of American oil and gas
    explorers and producers has been on clear display."

    What's more, according to Sgamma, the order would also put at risk $8.8
    billion in conservation revenue that is funded in part by mineral
    development on federal property.

    "Biden's ban is an overreach meant to satisfy the environmental left, but
    it would seriously harm the livelihoods of tens of thousands of westerners
    and put at risk millions more as state services become unfunded," she
    said.

    The order doesn't affect existing oil and gas leases, which can last 10
    years, officials have said.

    The Interior Department stated the pause "won't impact existing operations
    or permits for valid, existing leases, which are continuing to be reviewed
    and approved."

    Republicans in Congress have signaled they will work to stop Biden's
    agenda.

    "Pie-in-the-sky government mandates and directives that restrict our
    mining, oil, and gas industries adversely impact our energy security and
    independence," Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), a member of the
    GOP's leadership in the House, said in a statement this week.

    Dunno, if climate change is actually a concern, they you are supposed to tackle fossil fule consumption rather than fossil fuel
    production.

    Becasue let's face it, if your country produces less oil but the population demands oil, they are just going to import it from
    somewhere else.

    The powers that be want us to be dependent for energy consumption and
    not be a leader in energy production ... which we have been for a while
    now. Because God forbid that America be a world leader in anything. I
    can fully see Joe Biden running around apologizing for America's
    greatness like Obama did ... that is before he is removed and Harris is
    put into the presidency.

    From what I understand (I may be wrong), Biden's trying to make China
    great again in this latest round of stupidity. I mean, after all,
    Hunter's hiding out in the White House passing notes to dear Daddy as an "advisor". What possibly could go wrong?

    Indeed. Daddy's senile enough that he might even buy drugs for Hunter.

    There's reasons why Joe Biden is called "Joe Buyme" or "Joe Bribeme". He'll do anything for a buck and twice for two. Though, when it comes to anything important, he leaves that to President Harris.
