Biden Opens New Front in War on Domestic Energy with Revocation of Twin Metals Leases

The administration seeks further restrictions on the development of America’s energy security.

WASHINGTON DC (January 27, 2022) – The American Energy Alliance (AEA), the country’s premier pro-consumer, pro-taxpayer, and free-market energy organization, blasted the decision by the Biden Administration to revoke existing mineral leases for the Twin Metals mine in Minnesota’s Superior National Forest, that would supply copper, cobalt and nickel for America’s economy and provide thousands of good-paying union jobs for American workers.

AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“From his very first day in office, President Biden has worked to make energy harder to produce in America. While he has worked to cut off our oil and gas production here at home, he begs Vladimir Putin and OPEC for more oil. While he kills pipelines here at home, he happily lifted sanctions, supported by a bipartisan group of elected representatives, for a Russian pipeline in Europe.

Now he is broadening his reach, depriving Minnesotans of the opportunity for generations of jobs producing the copper, cobalt, and that nickel Biden says will play a part in his Green New Deal. By canceling these leases, President Biden is choosing Chinese and other foreign-sourced materials, including mines that use child slave labor, over unionized American workers. His actions show that he is either incapable of connecting the dots between energy security and national security or he simply doesn’t care.”
