house Bill H.R. 1941

Should Offshore Drilling be Prohibited in the Atlantic & Pacific Outer Continental Shelves?

Argument in favor

Offshore drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) carries many environmental risks and is broadly opposed by both the public and the governors of affected states. By banning offshore drilling in the Pacific OCS and Atlantic OCS, this bill would ensure that public opinion and concerns are respected in policymaking with regard to the OCS.

Let’s not start something we will have to stop as soon as we get a government that is not pretending that climate change is a hoax.

We need to stop supporting fossil fuel production and direct all of our resources into the development of renewable, environmentally safe, energy sources. New products are being developed and they continue to improve. Soon the wind turbines as we know them will be obsolete as solar panels of yesteryear are obsolete. Our ability to technologically advance increases exponentially. It is only the uneducated that are stuck in the past dreaming of what was in the "good old days." Stay on top of technology. You will be amazed.

Argument opposed

Drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) is an important revenue source for both federal and state budgets. Thanks to technological advancements, it can now be done safely and with minimal environmental impacts. Banning offshore drilling in the Pacific OCS and Atlantic OCS would endanger the United States’ economy and energy future.

Energy independence is necessary to protect our country. As long as they are doing their jobs correctly it helps us. We should use our own oil and let opec and other nations collapse.

This is a perfect example of how out of touch the Democrat Party is with everyday Americans; not to mention how radical it has become. I don’t know about you, but my lower middle class family is thoroughly enjoying the low gas and energy prices caused by our newfound energy independence.

    If we want to make any progress on the climate crisis, then under no circumstances can oil drilling be allowed! Plus, the risk of a spill could devastate our entire marine ecosystem and coastline!

    Anyone who loves their grandchildren and wants them to live a good lifestyle rather than die miserably on a dying planet must want to stem the fossil fuel and Republican made obsession with wealth and power not, not caring whether their own grandchildren die because they will be dead and they are such selfish , greedy monsters that all that matter to them is buying their 10th yacht, just like Betsy DeVos and Trump!

    Offshore drilling should be banned period, anywhere and everywhere! We don't need it, we don't want it, we are sick of the destruction this drilling does to our seas and environment. Filthy oil that is NEVER cleaned up, filthy oil that destroys everything it touches. And oh yeah, they always come out with this "it can now be done safely and with minimal environmental impact..." That is the exact same bullshit they have fed us every single time.... then comes the explosion, then comes the unending gush of oil into our seas, then come the excuses and don't forget, they NEVER clean up their own messes.... not one time. Look it up.

    Off shore drilling should be stopped for multiple reasons including a current over abundance of fossil fuels, risk of environmental damage and the transition to electric vehicles.

    We need to use common sense about how to use our resources. There may be some protections but not enough with the way our climate is changing

    Yes, until the threat of Russia’s influences has been removed from office, all offshore drilling must be postponed. Putin is pushing hard for his international energy pipeline. We need leadership who acknowledges science and who has demonstrated a pattern of protecting US National Security over a tyrannical President.
