John A. Warren’s May 23 commentary on the consequences of offshore drilling in our Lowcountry area was right to the point — offshore drilling makes no sense.

I value that his own background working in the oil industry gives him an experienced perspective on the damages done to the communities exposed to the offshore oil industry.

Much attention is given to not overbuilding here, and to the issues of how we are all going to navigate our roadways to just get around town.

Also worthy of our attention is that we enjoy living in this uniquely scenic Lowcountry, and our waters need to be protected.

I will send an email to Nikki Haley to voice my opinion against the offshore drilling “nonsense,” and encourage you to do the same.
