Energy and fuel - the lifeblood of modern civilization - are becoming ever more tightly controlled by governments that seek to increase their dictatorial power over the citizenry. All dictator wannabes know that if they can get people absolutely dependent upon government controlled utilities, from water to electricity to gas, coal and oil, communications, information, etc., then, through that control, they can gain absolute dictatorial control over the people themselves.
First of all, we need to look back at how the federal government just took ownership of 230 million acres of land from the sovereign states, and got away with it. It was done through the unconstitutionally legislated and unconstitutionally signed into law Antiquities Act of 1906. It was unlawfully established in law on the assumption that Washington (or President Theodore Roosevelt) knew better how to preserve and use the land than either the sovereign states, the Indian tribes or the current residents did. So the federal government just took it from them.
Again, we need to look at the constitutionally limited and enumerated powers of the federal government in the constitution itself:
Note that parks and antiquities and monuments and preserves are not in there. The only way these lands could legally be taken from the states, Indian reservations and the people who already lived on them would be through the constitutional amendment process, which would require ratification by a super-majority of the states.
We have long advocated turning ownership of these lands back to the individual states and Indian reservations they were taken from to do with as they and they alone see fit.
But note what else is not represented in Article One Section Eight:
So where does the federal government, or any of it's unconstitutional political parties, get off in dictatorially controlling in any way the finding and production of coal, oil and natural gas, or the transport and use of them? By what non-criminal authority do they establish expensive and restrictive licensing, permits and bureaucratic red-tape and rigmarole before anyone can simply mine coal or drill for oil or gas?
If energy is not among the limited and enumerated powers of the federal government in the first place, then, why do we even have a giant federal treasure-sucking Department of Energy?

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
