San Francisco Bay Oil Spill

Unless you are living under a rock, you know about the container that crashed into the Bay Bridge spilling 58,000 gallons of heavy bunker fuel into the San Francisco Bay. The fuel is as thick as motor oil and is so toxic that it makes your eyes water when you are near it. Nasty stuff. Schwarzenegger has now declared the spill an emergency, which will make more state resources available for cleanup efforts.

Cleanup efforts for this mess are going to take a lot more than the state’s resources. We need to all do our part to help. People interested in volunteering should not call this number, they should check for volunteering opportunities at www.owcn.org. People who spot birds covered with oil should call (877) 823-6926.

  1. I was under that rock for a day and went surfing. Not knowing how much oil had spilled. We paddled out on Thursday after the spill at Ocean Beach in front of the Beach Chalet. Totally and completely nasty. The water looked so clear and glassy, but once you got in, just globs of that sh*t all over the place and a nice sheen on the water. It sucked!
