Under Joe Biden, America’s energy independence has been under siege. Biden went out of his way to shut down leases for drilling oil and gas on federal land. And even though gas and electricity prices remain painfully high, Biden has done little to resume drilling.
From all appearances, this administration appears hellbent on putting the radical whims of environmental groups first.
A collection of activist groups sued to stop yet another much-needed project from moving forward. The 4th Circuit sided with the group, despite the fact that a law passed by Congress allowed the project to happen. The issue went all the way to the Supreme Court. And they quickly shut down the left’s scheme.
From Fox News:
The Supreme Court struck down a lower court ruling from earlier this month that blocked construction of the 303-mile Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) from proceeding.
In a short, unsigned order issued Thursday morning, the Supreme Court vacated the July 10 stay orders from the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, in which the lower court sided with plaintiffs…
MVP will transport about 2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from West Virginia to consumers in the Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic.
Boom! The Supreme Court rejected a low court order that blocked a pipeline from being built. The MVP pipeline was approved by Congress in the recent debt limit bill (thanks to Republicans). Even Joe Biden signed into law provisions to ensure the pipeline can be built.
But radical leftists sued to stop the pipeline from moving forward. This project will bring millions to the residents of West Virginia, as it transports natural gas from the state to the Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic regions.
Pipelines have been proven to be a safe and reliable method of transporting oil and gas. They are much safer than the usual method of trains or trucks. Yet environmental extremists have opposed pipelines, despite the benefits they offer to the economy and the environment.
I guess these leftists would rather see oil and gas transported on trains that can derail and spill over large swaths of land?
Joe Biden infamously stopped a major pipeline that would have brought billions to the country. And if liberals had their way, we wouldn’t have access to safe, reliable energy. This Supreme Court ruling is a big win for the country.
- The Supreme Court rejected a lower court decision that blocked a pipeline.
- Environmentalists sued to block a pipeline project that was worth hundreds of millions.
- The court rejected the ban, citing legislation passed by Congress that allowed the project.
