Thank you! #MakeYourVoiceEcho! - - - - - - - - - Ryan Zinke, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Department of the Interior 1849 C Street, N.W. Washington DC 20240 Dear Secretary Zinke, I write to you with grave concern about opening the coastal waters of America to increased offshore drilling. As a resident of New Hampshire, my personal concern is for the Gulf of Maine. off the shores of New England. I treasure our beautiful rocky coastline and all of the species that live here and migrate through. The North Atlantic Right Whale, Humpback whales and so many other species already hanging in the balance would be threatened by the excessive, excruciating sound that may even leave them deaf and unable to navigate by echolocation. Shorebirds that live here all year long or migrate through would also be put at risk. Those who draw their income from fishing in the Gulf of Maine's waters and the restaurants and tourism that are generated from fishing and recreation would be severely impacted. In New Hampshire, tourism is a key source of revenue. To continue drilling for oil and gas is destructive to coastal and marine ecology and species, but also to our climate, that is already impacting moose, lobster, shrimp, cod, maple trees and the quality of maple syrup. The precious snow that tourists flock to see sparkling on our mountaintops. go skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling on, is already in decline. We just can't risk raising the temperature even one degree more. I stand with Governor Sununu, Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan in respectfully asking that you reconsider the damaging practice of offshore drilling for oil and gas in favor of the people and wildlife that live in New Hampshire and New England and support of increased offshore wind and solar. Sincerely, [Your Name] - - - - - - - - - SUBMIT COMMENTS NOW https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=BOEM-2017-0074-0001 BOEM NOTICE Environmental Impact Statements; Availability, etc.: 2019-2024 Draft Proposed Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=BOEM-2017-0074-0001 EIS INFORMATION Notice of Availability (NOA) of the 2019-2024 Draft Proposed Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Leasing Program and Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=BOEM-2017-0074 Facebook event page
