EDF: Smart policies addressing water resources and clean energy are a must

North Carolina’s elected officials have expressed qualified support for President Barack Obama’s recent proposal to open the Atlantic coastline to offshore drilling.

But that’s not the only environmental concern facing the General Assembly when they return to Raleigh next month.

Jane Preyer, director of the Southeast office of the Environmental Defense Fund, weighs in on renewable energy, climate change, and seawalls this weekend on “News & Views.”

Preyer also discusses why thoughtful policies addressing clean water and clean energy will improve North Carolina’s economic outlook.
