Oil Drilling - Official Position of the Clearwater Audubon Society
Oil drilling off the coast of Florida seriously imperils our natural resources, as well as Florida's tourism industry, for the possibility of 10 months to 3-1/2 years supply of oil, and a small, undefined, number of jobs available to Florida's work force.
- The Clearwater Audubon Society, Inc. is opposed to oil drilling any closer to Florida's coasts than is already permitted under existing leases and laws; and
- Clearwater Audubon Society, Inc. supports energy conservation endeavors, and the development of alternative energy resources, in order to reduce U.S. consumption of fossil fuels and dependence upon imported oil, to create high paying jobs in alternative energy technologies, and to curtail carbon contributions to climate change.
- Michael L. MacDonald, President for the Board of Directors
