Restore the Delta blasts MWD's secret campaign to keep its water monopoly - by Dan Bacher
“Metropolitan Water District's (MWD) participation in a secret underground media campaign to influence the thinking of Southern California water rate payers reveals that they will stop at nothing to protect their position as the largest wholesaler of water exported from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta," said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta.

Former marine protected area chair urges 'caution' in adoption of safety guidelines - by Dan Bacher
“Everyone in the petroleum refining industry is focused on safety," Reheis-Boyd said. "That’s not the issue. The issue is identifying the best possible programs to ensure safe operations and putting those programs into practice in ways that make safety second nature. We must be very careful in how we introduce change, especially into programs that have a long record of acceptance and success.” Photo of offshore oil drilling platform courtesy of: http://qzprod.files.wordpress.com/201...
