South Carolina makes its case on NBC against offshore oil exploration in the Atlantic

The March 17th NBC Nightly News featured a story on the Trump Administration’s efforts to open much of the Atlantic Coast to seismic airgun blasting to search for offshore oil.

Interviews with those opposed and supportive of seismic testing were presented including one with Diane Hoskins of Oceana.

South Carolina Congressman Joe Cunningham with his subcommittee airhorn demonstration and Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg made appearances. Stick around to the end of the story for my statement for the national audience from the South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce.

Watch the story here.
