Biden ordered a ban on new oil and gas leasing as soon as he took office and has continuously ignored the orders of federal courts to reverse his ban.

Forbes, January 29, 2021: On his second day in office, President Biden signed Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis. The biggest takeaway from the Executive Order was the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline permit. Last week the administration also issued Secretarial Order No. 3395, which implemented a 60-day suspension of new oil and gas leasing and drilling permits for federal land and water.

NBC, June 15, 2021: Federal judge blocks Biden's ban on leases for drilling on public lands. In a setback for President Joe Biden's efforts on climate change, a federal judge in Louisiana on Tuesday blocked the administration's temporary ban on new leases to drill for oil and gas on public lands and ordered that lease sales continue.

Reuters, August 16, 2021: The Biden administration on Monday challenged a federal judge's decision in June to block the Interior Department's pause on oil and gas leasing on public lands and waters - a critical piece of its climate change policy.

CNN, February 21, 2022: The Biden administration has once again put a pause on new leases and permits for federal oil and gas drilling after a judge blocked the administration from using a metric that estimates the societal cost of carbon emissions.

CNN, June 30, 2022: Supreme Court curbs EPA's ability to fight climate change. The Supreme Court curbed the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to broadly regulate carbon emissions from existing power plants, a major defeat for the Biden administration's attempts to slash emissions."Under our precedents, this is a major questions case," Chief Justice Roberts wrote, adding that "there is little reason to think Congress assigned such decisions to the Agency."

Fox Business, July 1, 2022: The Biden administration did not give an explanation after it missed its own deadline to plan future oil and gas lease sales Thursday.

Fox Business, August 19, 2022: Biden's oil, gas moratorium dealt potentially fatal blow by federal court
