    This guy’s talking about unable to get a PERMIT to do some work. That part was not clear. I wish I had the transcript of the whole talk. But it sounds like some stupid red tape is to blame here for not being able to act soon enough. While listening, I’m thinking THIS IS AN EMERGENCY,, SCREW A PERMIT. I think of a fireman coming to a house ablaze and a family inside and saying ‘well, as soon as I get a demolition permit from the city, i can break this door down and save the family”. That is just ridiculous!!!!!!!!!

    I remember when the San francisco Bay was all but dead. Not from oil though. It was a recepticle for trash and hazardous fluids. The marin county dump was right on the edge of the bay under San Quentin. The marshes were absolutley “plugged” up.
    That has been cleaned up but it has taken my lifetime to do so.

    @Wizcon, “That has been cleaned up but it has taken my lifetime to do so.”

    The bay is cleaner than it used to be, however the damage hasn’t been reversed. Bay fish are too loaded with toxic chemicals to safely eat.

    @timesr, I stand corrected. I haven’t lived there for 40 yrs but have seen a vast improvement during my last visit there.
