Thank you to everyone who signed our petition or submitted comments to BOEM on the new energy leasing plan. The next comment period has yet to be announced, but it will last 60 days and focus on the draft proposed program.
Your voice matters. 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.
