The U.S. Department of Energy’s partial liquified natural gas export ban has been put on pause after a federal court blocked the measure.

President Joe Biden’s partial ban was announced in January, prompting a wave of litigation.

Because who needs reliable power when we can bask in the glow of our self-righteousness, right? It’s not like industries or homes depend on consistent energy to function or anything. Let’s just ignore the fact that renewables aren’t yet ready to shoulder the entire load. After all, sitting in the dark with our eco-friendly candles sounds super fun.

Here’s some of what The Center Square reported on the recent ruling:

Texans are praising this week’s ruling halting a partial liquified natural gas (LNG) ban imposed by the Biden administration.

Judge James Cain Jr. of the Western District of Louisiana issued a preliminary injunction against the U.S. Department of Energy’s partial LNG export ban in a lawsuit filed by a coalition of states led by Louisiana and Texas, the Gulf states that lead the U.S. in LNG exports.

Cain said the ban was implemented “completely without reason or logic and is perhaps the epiphany of ideocracy.”

The states argue the ban was unconstitutional and a political ploy in an election year after U.S. LNG exports and domestic natural gas consumption broke records, The Center Square reported.

Texas leads the U.S. in oil and natural gas production and in LNG exports, providing a lifeline to European countries previously dependent on Russian oil, The Center Square first reported. A senior advisor to the president, John Podesta, recently acknowledged the critical role of U.S. LNG exports earlier this year.
