01-24-15 ProPublica: Bad science from the Park Service

Kevin Lunny has owned and operated the Drakes Bay Oyster Company in a Pacific inlet north of San Francisco since 2005. This winter, an 80-year tradition of shellfish farming in the estuary came to an end when the National Park Service shut Drakes Bay down, claiming the company was a “heavy industry that imperiled the park’s wildlife.” While some environmentalists say “good government prevailed,” an investigation by Newsweek found that the science-as-evidence used to close down Lunny’s farm was either altered or bad.

    I sure wish the rest of the world had seen our predicament in time and been able to prevent this lawless overreach of government and weird agenda. Now the farm is gone, the workers are jobless and homeless, and the rest of us have lost a viable, sustainable, non resource polluting, protein supply.
