I am a long-time fan of Nick Welsh’s Angry Poodle Barbeque. However, last week’s column included a reference to our organization that requires correcting.
Our name is Stop Oil Seeps, or SOS California. The world’s second largest natural oil seeps ooze about 9,000 gallons of oil into the ocean daily along an 80-mile stretch of the Santa Barbara County coast, negatively impacting wildlife and polluting air, water, and beaches. Our goal is to inform the public that there is a solution unique to this area – to drill (I said it) for oil to clean up the environment and provide a financial bridge to our renewable future.
We may appear to be “particularly weird” for Santa Barbara, but as the commercial says, “It’s only weird if it doesn’t work.” Studies show, and many experts agree, this does! Check us out online at soscalifornia.org.
