“The administration of United States President Joe Biden has announced that it will cancel a number of oil and gas leases in a federal wildlife refuge previously issued under former President Donald Trump. In a press release on Wednesday, the Department of the Interior (DOI) authorised the cancellation of seven such leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the state of Alaska. The leases were issued to the state’s development agency in the closing days of the Trump administration but have been suspended since June 2021, citing ‘legal deficiencies.'” (09/06/23)
