Good for McCrory

I applaud this action. However, like "fracking" the end result is this: it will ONLY HAPPEN if it is profitable for oil company's and right now NC's supply of gas is not a viable amount to go after when they can easily get at much richer and larger fields in NY/PA/OH, and the newer one in CA.
As for off shore oil? I have to agree we need to EXPLORE the shoreline to see whats out there and seismic testing is far less dangerous than drilling exploratory wells so I say have at it (as long as the FEDs approve it). I'm not so sure there's viable oil fields off our coast but we won't know until we look. But, again, just like fracking for gas, if it's not profitable the oil company's won't do it.
This is all smoke and mirrors until we find a good, easy to get at, energy supply field.
But I give him credit for exploring this.
