There is an insanity to the decision to not renew the lease. Forty percent of the oysters in California are produced there. Thirty jobs. Yet in the same decision the ranches are allowed to stay in this “pristine” area. Yes they should stay, but so should the oyster business. Even the creators of the original bill stated it was never the intent to close down these businesses. Oysters filter the water and make it cleaner. Yet though a convoluted process aided by junk science, the decision was to not allow the renewal of their lease. The aftermath is importing of oysters in to the area using planes according to one retail shop. That does not strike me as very environmental. The other thing to consider is existing oyster beds are under threat due to pollution and acidification.
Please sign the petition to save this important part of California. As of today there is 3k signers.

Sorry if the lighting is not quite right on a few of them. The spring on my normal lens broke, disabling automatic exposure.

Sears itself was packed. They sold out of the old Wii they had on sale. Kmart parking lot was full and lots of shoppers inside.
