Earthjustice Responds to Obama Administration's Rejection of Harmful Airgun Blasting in the Atlantic

Earthjustice

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced today that it will deny six pending permit applications to conduct airgun seismic surveys in the Atlantic Ocean. Earthjustice has worked for years to oppose seismic blasting, which is used to search for oil and gas deposits under the seafloor, because of the harm it poses to imperiled marine life. For whales and other marine mammals that rely on sound for survival, this extreme noise pollution can have deadly consequences.
