A leaked memo revealed that the former Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Director recommended, as part of its climate agenda, the Department of the Interior (DOI) move forward with higher royalty fees for an oil and gas lease sale spanning 958,202 acres off the coast of Alaska. While the BOEM official noted that drilling in the area would produce “greater energy security”, the DOI increased its royalty fee from the proposed 16.67% up to a prohibitive 18.75%. Senator Joe Manchin reacted to the Biden administration’s memo by saying, “I am appalled by its contents, which make crystal clear that this administration is literally putting their radical climate agenda ahead of the needs of the people of Alaska and the United States.”
Higher energy costs affect food costs.
FIRST ON FOX: The Biden administration acknowledged in a memo, accidentally leaked on Friday, that charging fossil fuel companies less to drill would provide “greater energy security” despite its plans to hike royalty fees.
Former Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Director Amanda Lefton recommended late last year that, as part of its climate agenda, the Department of the Interior (DOI) move forward with higher royalty fees for an oil and gas lease sale spanning 958,202 acres in the Cook Inlet off the coast of Alaska, according to the memo obtained by Fox News Digital. DOI Assistant Secretary Laura Daniel-Davis ultimately signed off on the recommendation.
“If a Cook Inlet prospect would be developed, there would be additional government revenues and greater energy security for the State of Alaska, especially if development of natural gas resources in the Cook Inlet ameliorated the long-term supply challenges facing the Anchorage area,” Lefton wrote in the memo.
“Nevertheless, because of the serious challenges facing the Nation from climate change and the impact of [greenhouse gasses] from fossil fuels, BOEM is not recommending this option since it would not include an appropriate surcharge to account for those impacts,” she continued.
Lefton’s specifically recommended the federal government charge drillers with a royalty fee of 18.75% as opposed to an alternative of 16.67% which she said would attract more bids and “be more likely to facilitate expeditious and orderly development of [offshore] resources.”
Daniel-Davis stated in her record of decision — published in November after she signed off on Lefton’s recommendation — that she selected a fee of 18.75% “because this rate constitutes the most reasonable balancing of environmental and economic factors for the American public.” She didn’t mention the alternative would produce greater energy security as highlighted in the memo.
BOEM ultimately held the auction, known as Lease Sale 258, on Dec. 30. The sale garnered just one bid worth $63,983 for a single 2,304-acre tract, according to federal records.
In May, the White House canceled Lease Sale 258, which had been proposed under the Trump administration, in an unexpected decision that was promptly criticized by the fossil fuel industry and Republican lawmakers. However, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) mandated that the administration reverse the decision and hold the sale by the end of 2022.
“The Department of the Interior mistakenly posted an internal memo making recommendations to Acting Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management, Laura Daniel Davis, on the Cook Inlet Oil and Gas Lease Sale 258 mandated by the Inflation Reduction Act,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who helped author the IRA, said in a statement Friday.
“I am appalled by its contents, which make crystal clear that this administration is literally putting their radical climate agenda ahead of the needs of the people of Alaska and the United States,” he continued.
Manchin blasted the administration for ignoring Congress’ intent and seemingly pandering to environmental groups “at the expense of shoring up American energy security and keeping Americans safe.”
“The contents of this memo speak volumes – if this is what this Administration truly believes and is how they are going to make decisions, it is unacceptable,” the West Virginia senator continued. “It’s a clear and intentional threat to energy security and the all-of-the above energy policy Congress has consistently reinforced.”
Dr. Cowan described a ‘playbook’ to convince doctors of a highly lethal ‘syndrome’ that is poorly defined and could mean just about anything. Doctors then convince the public. In the early days, people are often sent to hospitals and given protocols that become the standard of care, but are deadly.

A prior injunction blocked the mandate in January 2022, only a few months after Biden issued the order, but nearly 98% of covered employees had already been vaccinated. Opponents of the policy said it was an encroachment on federal workers’ lives that neither the Constitution nor federal statutes authorize.
Since the CDC started collecting the data autism has skyrocketed from 1 in 150 in 2000, to today’s estimate of 1 in 36 children. The report failed to address the causes of autism, but claimed the rising rate was due to increased testing.

DeSouza said that the cabal of money lenders from “banking bloodlines” has dominion over the UAPs and is building a campaign of fear. He said that the next step is for UAPs to start shooting down commercial airliners and military jets. A ‘Fake Alien Invasion’ will be a psy-op. But the destruction will be real.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
The solution to the energy shortages is simple: end the war in Ukraine and re-establish energy flows into Europe and save the global economy. Instead, Western leaders refuse to relent, indicating that they are trying to destroy the West.
Democrats are using the conflict in Ukraine as an excuse to advance their agenda by declaring an energy shortage that raises the price of oil and gas, making fuel unaffordable for average people, forcing them to switch to a new, controlled system.
Recently published data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that there has not been global warming for the past eight years. Steve Milloy wrote that NASA satellite data confirms that evidence, even though 475 billion tons of CO2 were emitted.
I’m thinking the country needs to be liberated from these chicken little climate collectivists; and soon. Even if they were right, and the planet floods like in the Kevin Costner movie ‘Water World’, I think I’d rather join the ‘Smokers’ & float around the planet on the last oil super tanker than join those lefty flakes. Lol
Our civilization is still plugging along with gasoline prices at $5 per gallon, diesel at $6 per gallon, and electricity at 20 or 30 cents per kW-hr. Can you imagine how much productivity and prosperity we could have with gasoline and diesel at 75 cents per gallon and electricity at 5 cents per kW-hr? There would be PLENTY of energy, food, housing, transportation, healthcare services, education, entertainment, and fun for EVERYONE. We wouldn’t even need high taxes to help the downtrodden or build infrastructure since everything would be so incredibly cheap.
