Biden Killing Fossil Fuel Leasing on Federal Land – DC Watchdog

Biden Killing Fossil Fuel Leasing on Federal Land

If one thing is clear as the first week of the Biden presidency unfolds, it’s that he is killing the oil and gas industry and all of the good, high-paying jobs that come with that work.


President Biden is poised to impose a moratorium on new federal oil and gas leasing Wednesday, according to three people briefed on the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plan was still being finalized. The move will deliver on one of Biden’s boldest climate campaign pledges but will encounter stiff resistance from the fossil fuel industry,” according to The Washington Post. [emphasis added]

The White House has prepared documents that would pause new oil and gas auctions on federal land and water as the new administration reviews the program, these people said. The moratorium would not affect existing leases, meaning drilling would continue on public land in the West as well as in the Gulf of Mexico. [emphasis added]

Biden plans to outline steps Wednesday aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions and elevating the role of science in federal decision-making. Other new policies include protecting 30 percent of federal land and water by the end of the decade and identifying climate change as a national security priority.” [emphasis added]

    They are not the only ones. There needs to be a real housecleaning in Washington and Democratic run states like New York and Washington. But it would be a start Walter.

    The election was rigged, Americans, true Americans would not vote for a criminal that has been in politics for 47years and has lied and not accomplished anything! These people are right the ones that should be impeached are Biden and Harris for their crimes against America and Americans

    The only hope we have is our military is in charge, allowing the 20% who voted for him see what his executive actions are doing to jobs, where his allegiances lie, his lies to people regarding no Covid plan, and disregard to our safety stopping border wall construction and wanting immigrants released. They will put an end to this nonsense and expose people to the election fraud that took place and treasonous acts on our country. Everything being done in the background is following constitutional law.
