Offshore drilling

Offshore drilling


The Croatian public deserves to know the facts when it comes to expanding this dirty and dangerous practice to the Adriatic Coast, and what alternatives there are for clean energy generation. Instead of working to fully understand the implications of rushing to develop offshore oil and gas, our elected officials are being blinded by imaginary short-term profits and missing the real opportunity that wind provides. In just 10 years, offshore wind could generate more energy than could be provided by all of the economically recoverable offshore oil and gas resources. Unlike offshore drilling, offshore wind provides power directly to coastal communities where we need energy the most, without the risk of oil spills or carbon pollution. It’s time for the Croatia to use the lessons learned from more than 20 years of offshore wind development internationally and apply them to generating clean, renewable energy off our coasts.

One Response to Offshore drilling

  1. Climate pollution, like air and water pollution, must be considered before dirty energy projects move forward. New energy projects and leasing should be focused on clean energy, not projects that further our dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, some places are too special to drill or mine. These areas should be permanently protected and placed off limits to dirty fuel development, including coal, oil, gas, and uranium extraction.
    Please make a commitment to protect our lands and climate for generations to come by not allowing any new leasing of our public lands for extraction of dirty fuels.
