My letter to the White House this week:
Dear Ms. Browner,
During the week of August 4, 2010, you served as the administration’s principle spokesperson appearing on multiple national television programs, including NBC’s Meet the Press and ABC’s Good Morning America, to report findings from the interagency BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Budget. You stated repeatedly that “the vast majority of the oil appears to be gone.”
This week, multiple independent scientists have released calculations and investigations that show quite the opposite:
* from the University of Georgia that upwards of seventy nine percent of the spilled oil still remains in the Gulf
* from the University of South Florida oil found on the bottom of the ocean in a vast area of subsea canyons some 40 miles from the Florida panhandle
* and from the Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution, published today in Science, new mapping of the disputed massive underwater plumes of oil.

FREE ORGANIC COMPOST for your garden in San Francisco! Come and get it! Except — it’s toxic sewage sludge from San Francisco and 8 other counties, “composted” at the Carlyle Group’s Synagro plant in Merced, contaminated with dioxins, flame retardants, and thousands of other chemical and biological contaminants. What goes down the drains ends up in the sludge, and then in your garden.
