Interior Department seeks to complete land leases before Biden takes office in January
these are 99 year leases and 20 year leases if they are like current lease programs

Quote:
WASHINGTON—The Trump administration is taking the final steps to secure oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, starting a leasing process to strike deals with drillers to operate in the pristine, 19-million-acre wilderness before Democratic President-elect Joe Biden can stop it.

Mr. Biden has vowed to block plans for oil drilling in this northwest corner of Alaska. Congress passed a mandate to lease oil rights in part of the refuge in its tax overhaul in 2017—when Republican majorities controlled both the House and Senate. Mr. Trump’s Interior Department has said it expects a lease sale by January. Mr. Biden is slated to be inaugurated on Jan. 20.
I thought we had enough oil?

He wants to hurt the American people for not electing him President.

Trump is trying to protect our energy independence. We all know that Democrats will do what they can to make sure we are dependent on other countries.

An interesting way to imply criminality where none exists.

For what crimes will Trump be pardoned?

A size comparison of ANWR to the mainland.


The size location and size of where they want to drill



What the area they want to drill at looks like during the winter and summer.

Probably to make sure loony leftists can't **** up the drilling.

Oil supply doesn't last forever. Although I would like to see restrictions on exporting oil so that we do not deplete our own supply. Because if we are actually in need of more oil then we shouldn't be selling it to other countries.

Oh gosh, what a beautiful place. Democrats are lining up to make that their vacation destination. I can see them now, picnicking, BBQing, and picking flowers in Anwar.

Most of these loony, left wing activists, couldn't point to Alaska on a map. Yet they are up in arms that a very small region will be utilized to further move us away from being dependent upon other nations for our energy needs. After all, they have a "New Green Deal" to shove down our throats that will essentially drive us into 3rd world status. What more could we want?

If I were a liberal, I would start doing something that takes guts, like speaking the truth. Leftist weenies can speak only their master's words.

Looks like Trump's been a busy guy doing everything but paying attention to the corona virus. Over a quarter million dead and rising rapidly and don't bother him about it because he DOES NOT CARE!!! Guess we'll have to wait for President Biden to take over that chore. It'll be nice to have real president in charge again.
