Obama bans oil drilling 'permanently' in millions of acres of ocean -per BBC News

This BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38387525 exults in the banning of future oil drilling in the arctic.

'Outgoing US President Barack Obama has permanently banned offshore oil and gas drilling in the "vast majority" of US-owned northern waters.

Mr Obama designated areas in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans as "indefinitely off limits" to future leasing.'

I do wonder whether the real reason for this decision is environmental or ideological, or maybe even to protect the Saudi Arabian oil industry income, inshallah...
