Letters to the editor: Keep East Coast free of drilling – Hadley Wingate

Hadley fails to make a critical connection regarding U S Interior’s “Smart from the Start”, All of he Above” strategy. Knowing that view could possibly change by allowing oil companies to drill for oil off the East Coast breaks my heart. The  Department of the Interior will make a ruling sometime this year on  whether to allow oil companies to conduct seismic air gun testing off  the East Coast. That testing is a process where air guns blast  compressed air into the ocean…..Our best option to help preserve our  oceans while meeting our energy needs is to switch over to clean  renewable energy sources like offshore wind power that will protect our  marine mammals and coastal communities. continued
