Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration: Impacts, Regulations, and Consequences for the Southeast
The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is pleased to announce that this month’s Southeast Coastal Climate Network webinar will feature Michale Jasny from the Natural Resources Defense Council, presenting on American offshore oil and gas exploration. The federal government is moving to open vast swaths of American oceans- including virtually the entire mid-and south Atlantic- high-energy oil and gas surveys. Not only are these surveys a precursor to drilling, they have significant, far-ranging impacts in themselves. Attend this webinar to learn how exploration will affect our region and how coastal stakeholders can engage in the regulatory process.
