I am curious how Florida got exempted from this exploratory drilling... NC should do the same as they did!
Oil and Coal are not the future. We should be looking forward. And before people call me a tree hugger, this is coming from someone who owns all gas powered vehicles (Hemi V8, Flat 6, V6, and V4) as well as a 2 stroke Fourtrax 250cc Honda 250r.
It's not hard at all to see where the future of energy will come from though.
I agree 100%. The "original plans" were to "explore" the entire east coast of the US including Fla., that has changed now and I think we know why. NC at this time is Bulls Eyes for all this "exploration" to take place before the drilling start. Ones a lease is offered it is forever, something we need to stop before it even begins.
