    The quality of life afforded to our community by Humboldt Bay’s rich resources is threatened by the lack of a complete cleanup of the HBNPP, where remaining long-lived radioactive material could eventually find its way into the bay. The public assumes and expects that decommissioning will leave the site clean for all future generations.   Until , river otters in California were trapped for that fur. In Humboldt and Mendocino counties up north and in the Delta, otters managed to hang on. But from San Francisco Bay south, they vanished. Hunting was probably only part of it; water pollution may have been a big reason for the decline.

    Hugging California's northwestern edge is a spectacular network of parks protecting nearly half of the world’s coast redwoods, the world’s tallest living things, which grow over feet/ meters high (the remote Tall Trees Grove is home to the tallest, which measures in at feet). But there’s more than giant trees in this lush land. As this year draws to an end, another large endeavor also begins to wind down. In a few months, the decommissioning of PG&E’s Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power Plant just south of Eureka will reach a milestone—all of the radioactive wastes and materials will have been dismantled and excavated, packaged, and shipped off site.

    Ecology is a new science and considered as an important branch of biological science, having only become prominent during the second half of a century. Ecological thought is derivative of established currents in philosophy, particularly from ethics and politics. Its history stems all the way back to the 4th century. Hugging California’s north-western edge, a spectacular network of parks protecting nearly half of the world’s coast redwoods, the world’s tallest living things, which grow over feet high. But there’s more than giant trees in this lush land. Here, majestic (and big) Roosevelt elk graze in grassy prairies. Wild beaches are dotted with weathered driftwood, not a footprint in site, and.
