President Barack Obama’s designation of lands and waters as national monuments has amounted to more than 553 million acres over his eight years as president, which would cover the state of Texas three times, according to Media Research Center’s MRC TV.

In a move seen by many critics of President Barack Obama as a continuation of his administration’s “war on coal,” Interior Secretary Sally Jewell ordered a three-year moratorium on new coal leases on federal land.

Existing coal leases on public land would not be affected by the rule.

In her January 17 announcement of the rule, Jewell cited concerns over coal’s supposed contribution to climate change as the reason for the moratorium, saying the Interior Department will conduct a new analysis of how the extraction and burning of coal could make global climate change more likely.
