I'm a Libertarian living in Humboldt County, CA. I've lived here in Eureka since 1973 and joined the Libertarian Party in 1992. This blog will mostly focus on local political issues, but I may stray into state and national issues as well, when I can't help myself. Please post your comments by clicking on the "comments" link at the bottom of each post. Although I do moderate comments, you need not be a registered user to post them.
In his May 28 post, Classically Liberal debunks suggestions that global warming is causing an increase in tornadoes and their resulting damage.
The Los Angeles Times reports 19% of sport fish in Southern California waters are so contaminated they shouldn't be eaten by pregnant women and children. I've wondered about the fish up here for decades. Unfortunately, results from the next portion of the survey- the Northern and Central Coasts of California- aren't going to be released until next year.
I wrote here some time ago I always wondered about the fish in Humboldt Bay as I used to fish in the bay fairly often back in the 70s and 80s. When I was working at Humboldt Bay Power Plant there was a biologist doing fish surveys there for a while. I asked him if the sharks and other bottom fish here might be polluted.
He said they weren't and you could tell just by looking at them. I'm wondering if that's true?
