Environmental Group Attempts to Sue Biden for Selling Oil

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Radical environmental groups are attempting to sue the Biden administration for approving the sale of a new gas and oil lease in four Western states, even as pump prices skyrocket and continue to batter consumers.

According to Just the News, the leases were approved in order to increase domestic energy production in an attempt to slow the rise of gas prices.

The leases are the first to be taken up since the start of the Biden administration, and will be located in Montana, Nevada, North Dakota and Utah.

The suit that was filed argued that the deal violates the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, which was signed into law to protect federal public lands. The environmental groups also warned that the deal, and other deals like it, will “cost billions in harms to air, water, local wildlife and public health.”

There is another series of similar deals set to open in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.

“In spite of this administration’s climate commitments, the Department of Interior is choosing to resume oil and gas leasing,” Melissa Hornbein, a senior attorney with the Western Environmental Law Center, said Wednesday.

“The very least the BLM could do is acknowledge the connected nature of these six lease sales and their collective impact on federal lands and the earth’s climate.”

Hornbein said that the case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
