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.
