By not updating offshore leasing plan, Biden undercuts conservation projects

Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) and Jeff Kupfer of ConservAmerica write in the Savannah Morning News about the importance of offshore energy production.

The C3 Take
  • The Department of Interior has failed to implement a five year offshore leasing program, which could have negative impacts on local parks and communities.
  • Every year energy leases from the Outer Continental Shelf generate $900 million to the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which supports conservation and habitat restoration projects.
  • Unleashing American energy production is critical to not only reducing global emissions, but also funding conservation projects in the U.S.

“The LWCF supports the preservation of our country’s most cherished outdoor areas, and we are calling on the Department of Interior to move swiftly to implement a new 5-year offshore leasing program to protect the LWCF, and with it, the thousands of parks, pools, and recreational centers that allow us to enjoy the great outdoors in all its glory.”
