"Within weeks, the Obama administration is expected to release a proposal to open up vast tracts of federal waters in the southern Atlantic to oil and gas drilling for the first time. The plan, written by the @usinterior, is expected to delineate the waters that would eventually be auctioned and leased to energy companies, which in turn would bring the drilling industry to the banks of Georgia, Virginia and North and South Carolina. The move has the backing of the states' governors and of the Republican majorities in the state legislatures, but coastal residents in towns and cities like Norfolk, Charleston and Kure Beach see potential disaster. @travisdovephoto photographed the pier in Kure Beach, North Carolina, at dusk while on #nytassignment."
