Lisa Gautier of Matter of Trust, holding up hair boom originally planned for rolling on tar balls but was tested in the black waves that came in as she was standing there. The boom is soaked in oily slime. As oil came in fast we weren't properly protected. This beach was open to the public and there were kids and swimmers all caught by surprise by how much oil came in within a few minutes. We want to stress that if oil comes in, leave the beach. And if you are cleaning the beach, wear protective clothing. Lisa immediately washed off. Oil and dispersants are irritants to the skin, at best.

MofT is the fiscal agent for the San Francisco Environment Biodiesel for MUNI research project. The goal is to have the entire San Francisco bus fleet running on B20 (20% biodiesel 80% regular diesel) by the end of the first quarter 2007.
Oakland school busses proactively reduced their exhaust pipe emissions thanks to Michael's Transportation Services leading the trend towards using a biodiesel blend. Less pollution means healthier kids.
