Democracy? What’s that?

Is this what democracy looks like? At least that’s the most common chant that emanated from the cacophony. I’m sure the slogan means a lot of different things to people, but for a misanthropic curmudgeon like myself, being involved in such a human cluster might seem oxymoronic at best. Let me explain.The people I’ve been seeing out there in Liberty...

My latest work

An article in The Ecologist concerning dispersants: Toxic dispersants in Gulf oil spill creating hidden marine crisis.See Jane Do did a profile on me concerning my work in the Gulf.

Putting This New Phase of the Oil Spill into Context

An August 4 New York Times article entitled US Finds Most Oil From Spill Poses Little Additional Risk, clearly leads us to believe that only 26% of the officially estimated 4.9 million barrels (one barrel equals 42 gallons so that’s 205.8 million gallons) of oil spilled into the gulf is still at large.There is a handy graphic that is based on the findings...

Celebrating 100 Days of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

An interview I did last Saturday with Jesse Locks of “See Jane Do” is going to air tonight on KVMR at 630pm PST. Sorry for the short notice! We talked about my experience in Louisiana as well as what’s happening now. I will also be featured in the “Extraordinary Jane” column which will run on Sunday in the Nevada City/Grass Valley paper The Union....

Gulf Ecosystem Damaged By Gushing Oil: we need to create solutions

I’m posting this through tears. Drew Wheelan’s latest video highlights the importance of keeping this disaster in the forefront of our attention until it’s cleaned up and we’ve created a whole new body of oil industry related regulations.

Dispersing Devastation

I’ve finally succeeded in getting one of my articles published with a news organization. AlterNet has been kind enough to run this piece, Disaster on a Small Scale: How the Gulf Spill’s Devastation Works Its Way From Plankton to Pelicans. I’m currently working on another story for them that is slated to come out some time in the first week of August....

What HAS she been doing?

Long overdue progress update. What a bad blogger I am. I do have a few good excuses though. I know, I know, excuses are like @$%holes, everybody has one. Here they are anyway.Good Excuse #1: I’ve been feverishly working on full-length articles and query letters pertaining to various oil spill topics that stemmed directly from my visit to Louisiana....

Life Is What Happens When…

My apologies for the extended absence. Much busyness has been afoot. First, I want to touch base with the original goals of my mission down to the Gulf Coast. Then I’ll give an update about what I’m in for next. For those of you who have been following and contributing to my shenanigans from the beginning of this disaster, I would like to explain how...

The Ol’ Bait and Switch

Sorry for the absence folks. The too-good-to-be-true wifi at the campground was on the fritz and I didn’t have any luck at the other alleged hot spots in town. After three action packed days it took 2000 miles and an evening of rehashing the situation to friends back in California for me to be able to process some of the things that I learned down in...

Moon Booming

Reporting to you live from the Grand Isle State Park campground. Yes, the campground has wifi… What is the world coming to? I’m “camping” 500 feet from the closed beach and oil booms are stretched as far as the eye can see. Great news right!? Almost. The catch is, they’re placed above the high tide line. As I write this post amongst the music of crickets,...
