Believe it or not America import more from Canada and Mexico, so that is not changing even with the stopping of the pipeline...So, you are going back to getting your oil from Saudi Arabia, Russia and other enemies of America?Too bad it's just a political grandstanding ploy to satiate his constituents. The finding will be that a permanent ban on drilling would require congressional approval and keeping the companies that hold the leases whole. So it really won't accomplish anything more than pulling the wool over the eyes of his constituents. Too bad for the American families that will be negatively affected by this action.
U.S. President Joe Biden's administration has temporarily suspended oil and gas permitting on federal lands and waters in the latest of a series of rapid-fire orders aimed at fighting climate change and tamping down the U.S. fossil fuel industry.www.reuters.com
As for the Federal Ban by Biden let me be clear it is on Federal lands and water and not private lands, so pumping will keep on going on Private lands and there ain’t much Joe can do about it...
