Trump administration says No Oil Drilling off Mar-a-Lago

No word yet on other states.

(CNN) The Trump administration said Tuesday that it would not seek to bring oil and gas drilling to the waters off Florida, conceding to vocal opposition from the Republican governor of the tourism-driven state.

It wasn't clear Tuesday if the administration would make similar decisions for other coastal areas.

States Rush to sell ocean front property to Trump for equal protections. New Jersey says “eh, whatever”.

I'm shocked, I tells you, shocked!

Oh, well, there goes my hopes of a rig off Mar-a-Lago. Maybe someone could anchor a rig off-shore but not drill.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

How about a Museum of Offshore Oil Wells display area in the Inland Waterway?

Breathtaking partisanship (or NIMBY-ship, perhaps) I’d say. Trump makes very public moves to appease an anti-environmentalist base, while shielding his interests (like Mar-a-lago) and exempting states that voted for him from the consequences.

If I were a (rational) oil exec, I’d think twice about rushing to exploit offshore leases in the affected states - they’re going to have a fight on their hands, and the congress (and presidency) isn’t going to be in Republican hands forever (or, if we’re lucky, much longer).

NIMBY on steroids. There are very wealthy backyards up and down all the coasts.

Quite. But they’re not all owned by Trump or his buddies.

I understand Trump is perfectly okay with drilling 500 feet off Cape Cod, or Santa Barbara though.
