Great reference for USA's Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) information

Another very impressive knowledge/resource website available to anyone who wants to better comprehend our Earth, its intricacy, and society's future challenges regarding our biosphere is the US Department of Interior’s ~ Mineral & Management Service website.

One section of this multifaceted site focuses on four regional public meetings this April.
OCS Hearings and Report
hosted by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar in order to discuss the future of offshore energy development on the nation’s Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) with the public. The satellite images/maps illustrating various natural resource distribution alone make it worth looking at.
Quoting from the introduction:
"The purpose of these meetings is to have an open, honest conversation with the American people to solicit the best information possible about an offshore energy plan,"
