About 90,000 offshore wells have been drilled in the Gulf of Mexico. In April 2023, the Biden administration is offering up 73 million acres (29.5Mha) in the Gulf of Mexico for sale to oil and gas companies, threatening the health of Gulf communities and marine mammals in the sea. That includes the Gulf of Mexico’s Rice whales, the most endangered filter feeders on earth. Scandalous!
