The SC media, and even some Republican politicians, have begun to flip out over the possibility of offshore drilling here after Trump's recent executive order.

For now, they're going with hysterical scare tactics about seismic testing hurting the wildlife while withholding the rest of the story from their readers.

Left out of most of these stories is the fact that the Obama Administration's own Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) definitively stated in 2015 that “there has been no documented scientific evidence of noise from air guns used in geological and geophysical seismic activities adversely affecting animal populations.”

But what they won't tell you is the other side. That's the 11,000 direct jobs and 30,000-35,000 indirect jobs two separate studies have shown it would create here. 

Or the $3.7 billion it would add to our state budget over 15 years.
