Federal Judge Acts On His Climate Cult Beliefs, Cancels Oil And Gas Leases

Law be damned, there’s a cult that needs feeding

A federal judge canceled major oil and gas leases over climate change

Late last year, just days after pledging to cut fossil fuels at international climate talks in Glasgow, Scotland, the Biden administration held the largest oil and gas lease sale in U.S. history.

On Thursday, a federal judge invalidated that sale in the Gulf of Mexico, saying the administration didn’t adequately consider the costs to the world’s climate.

The administration used an analysis conducted under former President Donald Trump that environmental groups alleged was critically flawed.

The decision represents a major win for a coalition of environmental groups that challenged the controversial sale, calling it a “huge climate bomb.”

Those leases will be vacated by the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia’s decision, and the Interior Department will have to conduct a new environmental analysis if it decides to hold another sale. (snip)

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras wrote that the Interior Department acted “arbitrarily and capriciously in excluding foreign consumption from their greenhouse gas emissions,” adding that the “error was indeed a serious failing.”

Under what law or Constitutional principle? That sure seems like imposing foreign law on legal sales under U.S. law. I think it’s safe to say that this will be appealed, and, really, this judge should be impeached for breach of duty.

Oh, and when prices go up, who will the Warmists blame for spiking gas and oil prices? Especially when they won’t give up their own use of fossil fuels?

    It seems when Democrats are in charge they can run anything they want. Now we have judges determining energy regulations based on foreign consumption.

    Let’s go Brandon, inject more insanity into your already insane programs.

      What blows the smoke from my pipes is that judges on both sides can just arbitrarily decide to halt something and then it takes months if not years to get it back on track and the kicker is those judges face no ramifications for making decisions that are clearly out of their jurisdiction.

      The Michael Flynn case comes to mind when the judge decided to hold Flynn Hostage. Our legal system is under attack and the more the left uses this the more the right will do so as well and in the end. It is the people that depend on the rule of law that suffer. And yes. Both sides are doing this BS now without regard for anything but their own agenda.

      The law should be above agendas.
