Where’s Interior Secretary Deb Haaland hiding?

As Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland manages the Federal government’s onshore subsurface mineral estate – about 700 million acres (30% of the United States) held by the Bureau of Land Management. According to their website: For fiscal year (FY) 2018, sales of oil, gas, and natural gas liquids produced from the Federal and Tribal mineral estate accounted for approximately 8 percent of all oil, 9 percent of all natural gas, and 6 percent of all natural gas liquids produced in the United States.

That number could be even higher if energy production were encouraged rather than being discouraged. But Deb Haaland made her political way by opposing traditional energy and that is an inconvenient fact for the Biden Administration right now with skyrocketing energy prices.

Here are a few ways in which Secretary Haaland is nowhere to be found:

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm is at least publicly calling for ramping up production. Previously the White House was “quietly” calling for more production. But again, the head of the federal mineral estate where the feds have control over leasing and permitting is silent? Do they not want her talking about it? If not, why? Maybe because she put so much political capital into calling for a fracking ban and the Green New Deal?

  1. Do New Mexicans realize how fast and hard they are pushing this moldy green deal? They are going to sacrifice the health, landscape, and environment of our beautiful state for expansive windmills and 500KV Godzilla towers to bring power to California. We need to inform the public that these towers are going to go through pristine land. The politicians do not care. Let’s ask deb Holland if she wants them going through her reservation or better yet, Chaco. I’m sure she would have something to say about that. How much is the governor and Sen Heinrich getting paid to push this Moldy green deal through? Pathetic leaders in our state and nation. God help us.

    1. Many of the windfarms are on private lands generating income for Ranchers and Farmers. I agree that they are eyesores in many areas but as long as they meet codes they are generally approved by counties. The way to do changes is of course your county planning documents where many have considerations for permitting for critical view scape corridors. I had one wind generator killed because not only did it impinge on a residential area but there was no documented wind resource. The man was just trying for the credits.

      Along the same consideration, the 5G towers and Star Links are being rolled out and Biden has $65 billion dollars in his BBB Bill for it. Call your Congressperson to eliminate this provision because subsidizing Elon Musk is hardly in our interest. Besides, we should let fiber optics which are school safer {since they reduce the daily radiation on children) and longer lasting and so less costly and they should get the chance to compete.

  2. Maybe if you. could look into the dark hole where Heinrich and Lujan are cowering. I bet she’s there,
