U.S. Judge Scraps Trump Order Opening Arctic, Atlantic Areas to Oil Leasing

According to Reuters, a federal judge in Alaska has overturned U.S. President Donald Trump’s attempt to open vast areas of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans to oil and gas leasing.

The decision leaves intact President Barack Obama’s policies putting the Arctic’s Chukchi Sea and a large strip of the Atlantic Ocean off-limits to oil leasing.

The judge ruled that Trump’s attempt to undo Obama’s protections was “unlawful” and a violation of the federal Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.
