The Deepwater Horizon disaster demonstrated that offshore drilling is still a risky and dangerous endeavor. Schiff believes that renewable energy, sustainable development and hybrid vehicles will provide for more energy security and lower prices than any amount of offshore drilling. He strongly opposes opening up the California coast to drilling, and voted against H.R. 1229 in May 2011, a bill that would make drilling safety regulations weaker than even before the Deepwater Horizon spill and allow drilling off the coast of California.
