Off-Shore Seismic Blasting Mtg - Dec 7 2017

The oil industry hopes to one day drill for oil off the NC coast. To locate the oil under the sea, off-shore seismic blasting has been proposed. How would that affect NC’s fishing and tourism industries? Seismic blasting is December’s topic in the Pamlico Progressives discussion series.

On Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 6:30p, Rick Kearney, a retired environmental policy professor at NCSU and member of the NC Coastal Federation advisory committee, will speak about the impacts of seismic blasting. (Click here for diagram.) Heather Deck, Director of Sound Rivers, will also be at the meeting at Brantley’s Village Restaurant.

There’s a 6p meet-and-greet before the 6:30p presentation. It is all open to the public. To estimate approximate seating, please email Bill Hines at bill.hines@ec.rr.com if you are planning on attending.
