In one big week, Trump delivers for conservatives

Morey doesn't believe his organization could do anything to stop the Trump administration from opening up the coastal waters for drilling. "The Trump Administration's reckless decision to open these waters to further oil development represents a step backward into the outdated, dirty and destructive energy policies of the past", Jackson said in a statement.

Under the Trump administration's proposal, over 90 percent of the USA outer continental shelf would be available for oil and gas drilling, including parts of the Gulf of Mexico now protected by a congressional moratorium.

The agency must first take public comments on the proposal for 60 days, revise it, release the new proposal, and then finalize it.

Canary CEO Dan Eberhart on Monday said the Trump administration's proposal will ultimately lead to America buying less foreign oil, which in turn will stimulate job growth.

Even if the United States were experiencing an energy shortage, offshore drilling would not be the best solution.

It will still take years for drilling off North Carolina and Virginia to take place, if it ever does.

And in a written statement, he says he's opposed to offshore oil drilling in Florida.

The Trump administration is set to open vast amounts of United States coastline for oil exploration.

After tightening the rules by the Obama administration, only 6 {ed1200bddbc03902e1fcc2a87da27944790d59ab127710d2b088ca8caae8436e} of U.S. coastal waters could be exploited. In December 2016, as he was preparing to leave the White House, Obama withdrew leasing plans for the Arctic Ocean in Alaska. Marine sanctuaries also would remain off limits.

The bans were issued by former President Barack Obama and affected leases from 2017 to 2022.

Zinke said the revenue raised by the lease auctions would be invested in renovating national parks.

Of course, the happiest were the interested industrial groups.

. "Seismic testing and drilling put our recovering fisheries, our coastal communities, and our tourism-based economy at undue risk at a time when booming oil and gas production is more than enough to meet our current energy needs".

"California's economy thrives because of our environmental protections".

“We'd like an opportunity to look at all of the areas (including the Eastern Seaboard and Alaska),” said Tracy Krohn, the chief executive of W&T Offshore Inc (WTI.N), which now produces oil in the Gulf of Mexico.

For example, a 1972 federal coastal act gives California extensive input on federal actions along the coast, including the granting of federal oil leases. The plan doesn't allow drilling around Hawaii or USA territories.

State officials, environmental groups and oil-industry analysts say California has solid regulatory and legal means to try to make good on that threat.

"The central coast knows too well the damage caused by oil spills, our local economies and fragile ocean ecosystems can not afford another disastrous spill", Carbajal said in a statement.

"Californians will never let this happen", the Democratic congressman stated. "We've fought similar efforts before, and we will fight them again". "I'm confident we'll defeat this risky plan".

In Florida, Republican Gov. Rick Scott asked for an immediate meeting with Zinke. It failed previous year, but now the need is critical. Coal production has ticked up sightly, largely due to a rise in exports.

Trump's approach- what his National Security Strategy calls "energy dominance"- opens up areas of continental shelf, estimated to hold 86 billion barrels of oil, that have been protected for decades under a presidential directive dating back to President George H.W. Bush. Politicians up and down both coasts have come out in opposition to the plan.

Crude oil production in the United States has risen sharply since 2011, reaching 9.7 million barrels a day, almost half of the country's consumption. All but 15 percent was produced onshore.
