The Biden administration moved this week to suspend some oil and gas drilling leases in Alaska pending an “environmental impact review.”
“The decision marked a reversal of the Trump administration’s efforts to expand drilling in the region. President Biden previously placed a temporary hold on oil and gas activities within the refuge, citing potential ‘legal deficiencies’ in a Trump-backed leasing program,” reports Fox News.

“President Biden believes America’s national treasures are cultural and economic cornerstones of our country and he is grateful for the prompt action by the Department of the Interior to suspend all leasing pending a review of decisions made in the last administration’s final days that could have changes to the character of this special place forever,” said White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy.
