The DFG and state officials refuse to acknowledge the inconvenient truths about the MLPA Initiative. These include the fact that Catherine Reheis-Boyd, the president of the Western States Petroleum Association, served on the MLPA Blue Ribbon Task Forces for the South Coast, Central Coast, North Central Coast and North Coast. Reheis-Boyd, a relentless advocate for offshore oil drilling, hydraulic fracturing (fracking), the Keystone XL Pipeline and the weakening of environmental laws, CHAIRED the task force that developed the MPAs that went into effect in Southern California on January 1.

The endangered blue whale was killed by the Pacific Star, a boat operating without the necessary permit and observer, on October 19, 2009. The third-year anniversary of the whale's tragic death will be this coming Friday. For more information, go to: http://yubanet.com/california/Dan-Bacher-The-Whalegate-Scandal.
