The Biden administration auctioned off over 80 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico for oil drilling Wednesday despite a campaign promise to ban new oil and gas leasing, the Boston Globe reported.
The auction is the largest offshore oil and gas lease sale in the United States, according to the Boston Globe. The new leases will produce 1.1 billion barrels of oil and 4.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to a Department of the Interior estimate, the Globe reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This morning was met with extreme disappointment, depleted hope, and shattered trust,” Legal Director for Friends of the Earth Hallie Templeton said, the Globe reported.
A few days before the sale, the Biden administration signed a pact at COP26 which would require the elimination of subsides for the oil and gas industry. According to the article, Biden had formerly pledged to ban any new oil and gas leasing onshore and offshore.
Writer Kate Aronoff tweeted Wednesday, “Days after the Paris Agreement was brokered the Obama administration quietly lifted the crude oil export ban. Days after the Glasgow Climate Pact was brokered the Biden administration is holding the largest oil and gas lease sale US history. For those asking, @dharnanoor has already done a great job parsing through the reasons why this did not have to happen, even given the court order.”

There’s no promise the Biden Admin won’t break. Nothing Biden won’t lie about.
Looks like someone in Bidenworld finally figured out supply & demand.
