Cancel pipelines, restrict fracking, and now suspend oil leases. This is how you go from energy independence to energy dependence in less than 6 months.

The Biden administration suspended oil leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, the latest move in its effort to block plans to begin the first-ever drilling program in the pristine 19-million-acre wilderness.

The Interior Department said on Tuesday the program will be on hold until it completes a “comprehensive analysis” under the National Environmental Policy Act.
