oil spill. Think of having a quart
of 10W-40 poured down your
back while you surf...according
to Ed Shultz, this pipeline was
built in 1951. UPDATE: Just
read that the pipeline was built
in 1987. That didn't last long...
This is at Refugio State Beach, near
Hwy 101. A favorite destination.
Especially for holiday weekends
like Memorial Day, this weekend.
They say 105,000 gallons of oil
are spreading down the coast.
Our shores are getting covered
in tar for probably 50 miles to
the south and east. The beaches of
Goleta, Isla Vista, Santa Barbara,
Carpinteria and maybe Ventura.
We'll keep our readers posted.
I walk the beach almost every day.
I saw a whale outside the
breakwater two days ago.
What is this going to do to
them? The pictures coming in look
worse and worse. Why is okay for
the petroleum industry to destroy
our shores and wetlands? This
makes me ill; and it should you too.
Why did I bring this up in an
anti-smoking blog? Just last post,
we were speaking about TAR....
and now it stretches for ten
miles along our coastline...we
feel real sorry for the creatures
that live near or in the sea...
