"oil spill" Discussed on Native America Calling
"Up completely. What's the status? You know, I believe the gross amounts of oil these globules and the Sheen has been cleaned up by and large. They're still our sightings of oil, but to a much less degree. But what I really worry about is the unseen, we know there was these diluted bits and then they call it was diluted with benzene and the benzene is a carcinogen. And this was all in our environment, possibly on a molecular scale. So even though we may not be seeing the globules in the machines, we don't know the full impact of this oil on the micro environment and the turtles in the long-term effects are completely unknown as Doug said. We're missing a generation of turtles, but we don't know about the entire benefit environment, the muscles and a lot of the micro invertebrates and such. So it's ongoing and I'm afraid we'll never know the full scope of the damage. So the cleanup, what I'll did that entail and was the tribe involved in those cleanup efforts? No, we weren't involved at all at the this pipeline rupture was 17 hours before the pipeline was actually shut down. So that's how we released how enbergs released a million gallons of oil into our environment. And the tribe was really excluded from any consultation activities, the national historic preservation act usually kicks in with the section one O 6 consultation for historic and religious sites for tribes to participate in, but due to the oil pollution act, we were excluded from that process. This was considered a health concern of the degree that the tribes weren't consulted with on our potential sacred sites, our potential health effects, so we were just sort of looking in on a lot of it. And the army ultimately descended an army of clean up crews consultants contracts ultimately descended to clean the spill up. It was really unprecedented and something of the scope we never imagined. How long did that clean up process take? You know what? The river was closed for 5 years. And I think the better part of that 5 years was some degree of cleanup. It finally turned out that they decided the clean up process was doing more harm to the wetlands and the repairing corridors than the actual oil itself. I don't know if I necessarily agree with that. But it went on for a better part of 5 years. Now, Doug mentioned earlier that the tribe did not have oil spill preparedness plan or any type of environmental recovery, disaster plan in place. Do you have those types of precautions set now? You know, we do have small scale our namesake pine creek reservation has a small river and we have booms and the ability to respond to a normal spells. But a million gallons is something of the scope that I don't believe anyone other than national response teams can respond to. So we can respond to a small scale what I would call ordinary spills. The lesson learned out of this is that now we know our baseline cultural and environmental resources and are able to better respond. But back in 2010, we had no idea on how to respond to a 1 million gallon spill. Well, I'd like to ask Doug because mentioning resources and cultural assets, things of that nature. Apparently it impacted the wild rice that you have there in the community duck. Can you tell us about that? Yeah, I mean, wild rice is one of the major foods in our culture way back when and along with some other foods, but yeah, wild rice is a very sensitive product. I mean, you just don't throw it in the water and it just grows like coron or anything. It's very. I'm trying to find the words for a very sensitive we spent probably a good 15 years and are probably one of the leaders in wildlife restoration. However, sometimes it's the hit and miss when you're trying to grow it transplanted. There's a lot of variables that we don't quite understand yet. So we're in collaboration with a local university who's conducting studies in conjunction with us in the wild rice program. And it's a very sensitive plant to grow aquatic rice that is. So I'll turn it back over to you. We're talking today with Douglas Taylor and John rodwin. Both involved in members of the NATO band of the Iran potawatomi. We have to go to a break right now, but we'll be right back. I'm your host, Sean spruce..
"oil spill" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"In 2018, miyoko ocean's program director for the center for biological diversity was part of a fact fighting cruise along the California coast to inspect about a dozen oil platforms. She and other environmental advocates immediately told anyone who'd listen about the bad shape that they were in, even back then. Miyoko, welcome to the times. Thank you. It's nice to be here talking to you. What was your reaction upon hearing about this most recent oil spill off the coast of Huntington Beach? Well, the immediate reaction was that it's just a devastating thing to have happen off of our coast. I mean, you see and oiled bird and it's just incredibly heartbreaking and just to know that miles and miles of our coast are being harmed by this terrible oil spill. Just a terrible reminder that off for drilling is dirty and dangerous. And it shouldn't be in our oceans. As I said earlier, you another environmental advocates went up close to these oil platforms off the California coast back in 2018. Can you describe what you saw then? Yes, it was a trip where we took a boat and we got in these zodiacs. And took them around the various platforms, the offshore drilling platforms off of Southern California. And this set platform Ellie and the other cluster there of platforms were the first ones we visited. Yeah, Ali is the name of the platform connected to the pipeline where the leak occurred. That's correct. And the thing that was most notable, well, these are huge ominous structures, first of all. And from the distance that we could get, which was about 300 meters away, you could just see that they were old, aging infrastructure, very rusty. And it was just so clear that these things have been out there for far too long. And really, we should not be using them to drill for oil anymore. They're really just ticking time bombs waiting for an accident like this to happen. And you're able to see those conditions over 300 meters like a thousand feet. You can see the rest on the platforms from there. I mean, these things are out there and the waves getting battered by wind and waves and storms. And the seawater is just incredibly corrosive. And you can imagine after being out there for 40 years, they're not in good condition. And up and down the coast, there's about 23 of these platforms. And they all suffered conditions like that. The other thing we were looking for were we had a thermal camera to look for leaks of methane and one thing we saw in this cluster of platforms was some flaring going on and usually they're flaring, not supposed to be happening in federal waters. So literally just fire just fires being set to make sure things don't explode. So when a oil and gas rig is getting too much gas out and they can't process it quickly enough, sometimes they'll light it on fire. So you'll see a flare coming out with that's burning the methane off into the atmosphere. One way look back at the environmental documents when these platforms were first built, you know, they intended lifespan of them was supposed to be about 35 years at which point they would be decommissioned. And we're far beyond that now. And so it's really time to hasten them to their end and put the decommission every single one of California's platforms. They're all that same vintage and time to be done. Who regulates these oil rigs? Like who makes sure that, hey, they shouldn't be so decrepit. They should be decommissioned. Who's in charge of all this? Well, these platforms are in federal waters, so the federal waters ones are overseen by an agency called the bureau of ocean energy management. And another bureau bessie that's supposed to be a regulator of these offshore platforms. And the one thing that you see with these regulators is that they often are mostly in the business of granting drilling permits. And in my view not doing enough on the side of really providing robust oversight to make sure we have our environment protected and human health and safety protected as well. So then that's when it takes activists or advocates like yourself to them pressure the local politicians and basically try to go up the change to pressure the people who are supposed to be in charge of all this. Yes. And I think that, you know, everybody who's been affected by this spill. I mean, these are iconic beaches in Southern California and the people just, you know, they're famous surfing beaches, people love being out on the beaches and in the water. And I think every single one of them should be contacting their local representatives. I mean, this is not just a federal waters issue, though. Not only are we looking at platforms that are have outlived their lifespan in federal waters, but also there are platforms in state waters that continue to issue new permits for drilling. I mean, the oil spill is completely devastating to wildlife. At the same time, there's ongoing pollution from all the drilling that's permitted in California. That is contributing to climate change. And so if governor Newsom and President Biden are clear about their climate goals to reduce global warming and climate change, then continuing to permit new drilling is just taking us in the wrong direction. And so we really should be calling on them all to stop issuing new drilling permits. If anything we should be phasing out existing drilling. This sadly isn't the first devastating oil spill in California. In fact, the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, which had 3 million gallons spill out. It started to push to ban offshore drilling in California and also it was a catalyst for an entire generation of environmental activists that led to also the founding of earth day. And what's interesting to me about oil spills is like, you'll see news accounts about rivers getting poisoned with mercury or other chemicals and people get upset about that. But anytime you hear about oil spills, it seems to really galvanize people really upset them. What is it about them that affects the public so much? First of all, I mean, the stench from an oil spill. Anybody in the area, I mean, there were reports of people smelling the oil, far before any of the oil spill was even reported officially. And so I think one thing is is that it is a very visceral experience to be near the oil spill. And also just the devastating images of fish and birds washing up dead on shore. The coastline being blackened by the toxic oil sludge. It's really a visual reminder of how sensitive our environment is and how damaging oil can be on our ecosystems. And the effects are so long term. I mean, what we're seeing now is kind of unfolding over a few days and we expect, but the true toll of the oil spill could be many years from now. And for example, the Exxon Valdez spill up in Alaska, even 25 years later, they were still finding oil on the shores and still had problems with the fisheries that.
