Helping: Democrats Want Brandon To Ban Drilling On Federal Land For Climate Scam

Tone deaf, clueless, out of touch. Yet, none of the elected Democrats are giving up their own use of fossil fuels, eh? Oh, sure, a handful, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, bought electric vehicles (because they make a lot of money), but, they still take lots of fossil fueled flights

House Dems want Biden to declare national ‘climate emergency’ and ban oil drilling on federal lands

Progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives are reportedly planning to publicly urge President Biden to ban oil drilling on federal lands amid record gas prices and a war in Ukraine that has disrupted oil markets.

According to a report from Politico,  the Congressional Progressive Caucus is planning to demand that Biden use his executive power to declare climate change an emergency and ban drilling on federal lands.

“Progressive Caucus member @JaredHuffman told me calling on Biden to declare a climate emergency is one of the ‘centerpiece’ actions to headline their EO plan,” Politico reporter Joshua Siegel tweeted Tuesday. “A draft of the plan I saw also calls for Biden to ban oil/gas drilling on public lands and end fossil fuel subsidies.”

Siegel added that House Democrats will also call on Biden to manufacture more heat pumps to “ease the strain in oil and gas markets that has been caused by Russia’s war in Ukraine.” Some of those heat pumps would be donated to Europe, according to the House Progressives’ plan.

Can you ban drilling when the permits have already been approved? When they were essentially given a contract to do so? Does Brandon have the authority to unilaterally do so without Congress passing a law? Also, as you know, they are not subsidies, they are tax breaks, and almost all of them are not fossil fuels specific, but, are used by other countries.

The Progressive Caucus reads as a list of the nuttiest members of Congress, who fail to practice what they preach.

    Cue retread arguments from Clinton and Obama Administrations:

    “It won’t matter. It takes ten years to bring that oil to market.”


    “We don’t need that oil because we will have renewable power in the future.”

  2. Hairy says:

    This year we will hit 12million bpd pumped oil. That is more than any year under Trump.
    We are currently at 11.8 million

    Teach whines… again…

    Riddle me this. These days, how is someone to fly somewhere without fossil fuels?

    Anyway, do you think President Biden will do as the progressives ask? Unlikely. Bad politics. Bad optics.

    How does a U.S. President control gasoline prices? He could order U.S. refineries to accept crude from Russia and Venezuela. Temporarily eliminate state and federal gasoline taxes. Nationalize the industries.

    BTW, as crude oil prices have hovered around $100/bbl (down from $120), gasoline pump prices have dropped here. It’s been reported that this ‘crisis’ has been a boon for multinational oil companies such as Exxon Mobil, BP and Chevron.

    For those who would like to look a some more realistic numbers, try these sites:
    Oil Production:, or a simple google search for ‘oil production’. There’s lots of data there, generally oriented towards the industry and / or investors.

    Oil Rig Count:
    Again, a google search for oil rig count will get you there as well, again generally oriented towards the industry and investors.

    As the china virus got it’s footing in about March, 2020, oil consumption and therefore, production, took a hit. Oil production is an expensive business and without market(worldwide), production is scaled back. This was from the highest production in U.S. history. (please check the sources). It took several months for the market to get moving again, remember?, and with current prices, production will be ramped up as much as possible. Drilling is expensive, I’ve heard figures up to $30m (don’t have substantiation on that, but it sounds reasonable) to set up and drill a new well.

    Personal disclaimer, I’m not in the oil business, I do have equity investments in the industry and friends and relations who work in it.
