Stop Seismic Testing in the Atlantic!

Late last week, the Obama Administration and the Dept of the Interior announced that they would move forward with seismic testing off the Mid- and South-Atlantic coast.  This is very unfortunate, but not unexpected, news.   Countless coastal towns and counties, as well as thousands of citizens voiced their opposition, however there is still time to let our voices be heard.  The BOEM has opened a public comment period, expiring on July 31.  Use this avenue to voice your concern on the new Oil and Gas Lease 5 Year Program that is being proposed.  Tell our government that we do not want to see our coastlines littered with oil rigs, which pollute our most precious resource. Additionally, the seismic airgun testing will injure or kill over 138,000 whales, dolphins and other marine life, according the Feds own study.  Further, over 825,000 NC citizens rely on the ocean for their livelihood, imagine what another disaster like the BP Horizon spill in the Gulf will do to our commercial fishing and tourism industries.  Follow the link here to let the BOEM and the Dept of the Interior your desire to protect the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and eastern Gulf of Mexico from any lease sales or offshore drilling in the plan.
