SAY NO TO OFFSHORE DRILLING
Report shows Atlantic hurricanes, offshore drilling are a dangerous mix
SELC has released a new report documenting the ways hurricanes could become even more damaging and devastating for local communities when combined with offshore drilling operations. In assessing the likely impacts of offshore drilling in the Southeast, the report examines the damage to oil and gas infrastructure and the devastating consequences for Gulf Coast communities in the wake of hurricanes, as well as research on intensifying hurricane patterns in the Atlantic.
THANK YOU FOR STANDING UP FOR OUR COAST BY SUBMITTING PUBLIC COMMENTS!
The next phase includes the release of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s 2019-2024 proposed plan, expected in late 2018 or early 2019, where we will see if the Atlantic coast remains part of the leasing plan. This will involve another public comment period, so stay tuned for more details.
In the meantime, your voice continues to play a critical role to amplify the strong opposition from coastal communities, business, and state and local leaders to keep drilling from our shores.
