Oil Spill Updates

Published by at 9:13 am under Oil Spill

It appears that the Albany Beach will remain closed for today. There are no new updates on the City of Albany website but ebparks.org is reporting “all parks open, some beach access limited”, but then goes on to say the Eastshore State Park is closed November 12. How much of the bulb is part of the Eastshore State Park, I’m not sure, but I believe it is the upper level plateau and the trails that lead out to the lower point (“the bulb”).

On Sunday Nov. 11, Berkeley City issued a proclamation restricting access to all Berkeley waterfront areas until further notice. Visitors are being asked to stay 50 feet away from the shoreline.

    One of the ways Oil corporations convince Americans that oil is the best energy source available is by insisting that current technologies guarantee the safest, cleanest, and most secure means for drilling and transporting oil. The public relations machine run by oil companies is so smooth, it has been successful at staving off government investment in renewable energy technologies, auto industry investment in more efficient automobiles, and attempts to block drilling in America’s most serene natural habitats. Again and again we are all duped by this enormously powerful industry that acts as the perpetual victim while reaping the world’s largest revenues in history.
