Oppose Seismic Testing In Atlantic

By / Letters to the Editor / Wednesday, 29 June 2016 04:00

As Willard Killough’s article noted the Obama administration removed the Atlantic Ocean from the
offshore drilling plan for the next 5 years, however seismic blasting is still a danger to our beaches.
Thanks to many people’s hard work North Carolina was removed from the offshore drilling plan. Yet we have only won half offshore drilling battle.
I’ve visited the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico scattered with oil rigs and compared that to the pristine Carolina beach.
I never want my beach that I’ve grown up going to to be harmed by offshore drilling or seismic blasting. Dangerous seismic blasting is the first harmful step to offshore drilling in the future and will harm our fisheries and endangered wildlife.
Wilmington beach citizens agree with me and strongly opposed offshore drilling and seismic blasting off our coast. The public comment period to show the government that we oppose seismic blasting will be open soon. Show the Obama administration that we don’t want to continue this unnecessary exploitation of our coast.
