Oil Spill Trigger Disaster Designation on CA Coast: HuffPost Live

Sean on Huffpost Live 05-22-15I was on Huffington Post Live this afternoon.  I wasn’t able to finish my thought (Real Housewives were apparently on deck). But if I had, I would have noted that our clean-up technology hasn’t kept pace with our drilling/extraction technology.  And that you can have all the regulations you like, but it is the government that needs to be there in person for the inspections and enforcement side of the equation.  When you chronically underfund agencies, there simply isn’t the person power for inspections.

Yeah, should have said that more succinctly.

This segment covers pipeline regulations, tourism perspectives, and has brief update from US Coast Guard (the indecent command lead)…in addition to my ramblings about use of the coast and ecological impacts.
