Obama bans arctic drilling

Posted by | December 20, 2016 17:08 | Filed under: Good News Politics

President Obama is getting ready for a Trump presidency.

Obama relied on a 63-year-old law to make his moves, which will prevent future leasing of certain offshore areas for oil rights. His successor, Donald Trump, who has promised a policy allowing more US energy production, would face legal challenges if he attempted to reverse Obama’s order.

The White House said Obama was declaring the entire US portion of the Chukchi sea and the vast majority of the Beaufort Sea “indefinitely off limits for future oil and gas leasing,” citing critical protection for the marine mammals, ecological resources and native populations.

Canada also announced Tuesday that it will freeze its offshore oil and gas exploration in its Arctic waters.

    And this is a man who knows the Constitution and has a deep understanding on what to do for the greater good of all of us. Now he will be replaced by a bloated orange.
