On Thursday January 4th, 2018, the White House announced its plans to open nearly all U.S. federal waters to offshore drilling activities. In a new draft five-year program for oil and gas development, the Department of the Interior (DOI) outlined its plans to expand future oil and gas leasing to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, as well as the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
This plan includes the possibility of drilling for oil DIRECTLY off Miami’s beaches in the straits of Florida. This is the largest number of potential offshore lease sales ever proposed.
THIS IS WHY:
On January 25th at the City of Miami Commission Meeting, City Commissioner Ken Russell of District 2 will be introducing a Resolution opposing Offshore Drilling and Seismic Airgun Blasting.
Miami Residents must attend to show the City of Miami how crucial it is to keep oil and gas drilling OFF our beaches.
