Public Hearing On Off-Shore Oil Drilling and Protection of Endangered Species

Interior Secretary Salazar will be holding hearings on off-shore oil drilling in several locations in April.

We
also hope folks can raise the issue of the two rule changes to the
Endangered Species Act that went into effect days before the Obama
Administration took office. These are the Sec 7 rule which deals with
consultation and the sec 4(d) rule commonly referred to as the Polar
Bear rule on global warming. 

It
is critical that we have a big turnout in SF.  The Mendocino Coast is
on the docket for offshore oil drilling and wave energy development, as
well as U.S. Navy expanded weapons testing.  We are fighting to keep
our coast (1 of 4 in the world with unique upwelling) free of
pollution, etc.


At
each location, doors will open at 8:00 a.m. and meetings will begin at
9:00 a.m. Meetings will conclude by 8:00 p.m., with breaks tentatively
scheduled from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Please refer

If
you are unable to attend in person, or are unable to speak at the
meetings, you are welcome to submit written statements, comments and
documents, either at the meetings or during the public comment
period, which ends September 21, 2009. For more information on how to
