ICYMI: Coastal NC Newspapers Feature DENR Secretary Donald R. van der Vaart on Offshore Drilling

 

In recent newspaper editorials, DENR Secretary Donald R. van der Vaart described the significant economic benefits of offshore drilling and the responsible stewardship of North Carolina’s coastal environment. Opinion pieces in the Outer Banks Sentinel, Island Gazette, New Bern Sun-Journal, Carolina Coast Online, and the Wilmington Star-News detailed the potential for offshore drilling and how it can be done safely. Offshore energy exploration and development is estimated to generate as much as $4 billion and create thousands of jobs in North Carolina.
