Florida’s Coasts are safe from Oil Drilling

That is big and important news for Florida. The Sunshine State Florida is one of the biggest vacation destinations in the United States and the most valuable treasures in Florida are the clean beaches. The government has decided to ban the off shore drilling at the Florida coasts until at least 2022.

During the oil spill in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico many states in that region had big problems with the oil that harmed the animals and birds as well as the underwater and beach vegetation.

Florida was lucky at that time. We only had limited exposure to the oil spill in the northwest region of the state. However, we felt with the other states who had fight the consequences.
