Wed Apr 15 2009 (Updated 04/22/09) Final Public Hearing on Plan to Open US Coast to Offshore Oil Drilling Held in SF
Offshore Oil Hearings Come to San Francisco The Obama administration was in San Francisco on Thursday, April 16th, to hold a day-long public hearing on Bush's offshore oil and gas proposal, which would open most of the outer continental shelf of the US to offshore drilling. The plan would allow new drilling for the first time in decades in Northern California's Point Arena Basin as well as three offshore basins in Southern California.

A coalition of environmental groups, including Ocean Defenders Alliance and Surfrider Foundation, organized an all-day rally featuring music and speakers outside the hearing on the UCSF Mission Bay Campus. Live webcasts of the hearings were available online, including an audio webcast at EarthCycles.Net.
