Biden admin blocks oil drilling in 1.5 million acres after legal challenges by eco group

The Biden administration proposed a plan to lock up nearly 1.6 million acres of public lands from oil and gas development across western Colorado in response to multiple legal challenges filed by environmental groups.In a draft supplemental environmental impact statement announced Thursday, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued so-called resource management plans for its Grand Junction Field Office and Colorado River Valley field offices which oversee mineral leasing in the area. The proposal would restrict the two offices to leasing just 239,000 acres and 143,000 acres, respectively, for fossil fuel production, a total reduction of about 80%. "Public participation is key to the development of Resource Management Plans," BLM Upper Colorado River District Manager Greg Larson said in a statement. "This new analysis will ensure the BLM’s management of these areas will best serve our multiple use mission for the future." BLM's proposal comes after years of legal challenges spearheaded by several environmental groups that argued the federal government failed to take climate change and greenhouse gas emissions into consideration when formulating its resource management plans, which are issued by field offices to outline how they will manage designated lands for the next 20 years.

                  Biden now has to ensure energy prices for regular Americans don't go up or he'll have Republicans jumping on this decision and using it to sway the vote..
