Your voice matters. We have another long fight to keep North Carolina off-limits to offshore drilling. Send in your comment today!
BOEM’s new draft oil and gas leasing program could open nearly all U.S. coastal waters to offshore drilling. The public comment period opened Jan. 8. Let the federal government know that North Carolina must remain off-limits to offshore drilling. Find talking points here and here. Send your comment. Plan to attend the Feb. 26 public meeting in Raleigh.
Public opposition to offshore oil drilling helped stop it from happening off North Carolina’s coast in 2016. It also helped convince Gov. Roy Cooper to take a strong stance against offshore oil drilling and seismic blasting. The waters off North Carolina should be off-limits to these destructive processes. They are too great a risk to this state’s coastal economy and environment.
