Oppose Drilling Off North Carolina's Coast

Drilling for oil and gas off North Carolina's coast presents significant risks with little reward. The coast's tourism, recreation, and fishing industries are dependent upon a healthy environment and thriving natural resources.

Oil and gas operations have a long history of environmental destruction, from underwater spills during extraction like the 2010 BP Gulf Oil Spill, to spills during transportation like the infamous Exxon Valdez spill in 1989. These communities and the wildlife nearby are still dealing with the fallout from spills. North Carolina's coastal communities shouldn't have to face these same risks.

Sign today to show our state and federal leaders that North Carolinians don't want offshore drilling off our beautiful, natural coast.

 
Dear [Recipient],

Drilling for oil and gas off North Carolina's coast presents significant risks with little reward. The coast's tourism, recreation, and fishing industries are dependent upon a healthy environment and thriving natural resources.

NC's coastal waters are home to endangered wildlife, such as the right whale and loggerhead sea turtles. Offshore drilling poses unnecessary risks to their survival. Please oppose drilling off NC's coast. 

Instead, please support the development of NC's significant offshore wind resources and help to make North Carolina a national leader in clean energy.

Sincerely,
Sign Petition
