EPA May Shut Down Permian Basin

Despite the big win in the Supreme Court against the green tyranny Democrats inflict undemocratically through the EPA, the Biden Regime’s war on domestic energy production continues to escalate:

[T]he Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it may soon issue a ruling declaring that vast parts of the Permian Basin are in “non-attainment” status under the agency’s ozone regulations. If such a declaration is made, it will constitute a direct governmental assault on what is by far America’s most active and productive oil-producing region and its second most-productive natural gas area. The Permian currently accounts for fully 43% of total U.S. daily oil production and is home to almost 40% of the nation’s active drilling rigs according to the Enverus daily rig count.

But… but… the Supreme Court said Democrats had to stop using the EPA as a wrecking ball to destroy the energy industry, and had to instead pass laws through Congress, which would force them to face the wrath of voters. Or maybe not:

Thursday’s decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in the West Virginia v. EPA case is not expected to impact the agency’s ability to set standards on ozone levels and enforce them. If anything, it seems likely the agency, at least under a Biden presidency, will seek to become more aggressive in this realm as a backdoor means of continuing to force coal-fired power plants out of business and, as in this case, hamper the domestic oil and gas industry.

Placing the Permian Basin in non-attainment status would force a significant reduction in the region’s rig count, severely limiting the domestic industry’s efforts to increase U.S. oil production at a time when the global oil market is already severely under-supplied.

Never mind Biden’s mendacious noises about increasing domestic production. Literally from his first day in office, he has done everything in his power to cripple it.

Biden guaranteed in advance that he would abolish the fossil fuels that are the lifeblood of the economy and that we require to survive:

In an astonishing manifestation of mass suicidal stupidity, people actually voted for Biden anyway. Those who did deserve what’s coming. The rest of us don’t.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is enraged:

“The EPA’s process could interfere in the production of oil in Texas which could lead to skyrocketing prices at the pump by reducing production, increase the cost of that production, or do both,” The Governor wrote Biden this week. “Your administration’s announced action is completely discretionary. Thus, you have the power to stop it.”

But Biden won’t stop it; here’s why:

Don’t let them insult your intelligence by claiming this is about their scapegoat Vladimir Putin. We have our own oil; we don’t need Russia’s. Biden sent energy prices skyrocketing well before the invasion of Ukraine.

At a phony surface level, the Liberal World Order means everybody is in NATO except Russia. At the more meaningful level that impacts our lives, the Liberal World Order means that while John Kerry flies across the planet on a private jet, regular Americans take an electric bus — except during brownouts. We are told to believe this will improve the weather.

It could not be more obvious that our liberal rulers do not mean us well. If the media were not on their side, Biden deliberately forcing up energy prices would be on the front page of every paper.
