Fortunately the City and National government are working on cleaning up the Bay. Hopefully this will work as the Bay really is a sour spot in an otherwise pretty decent city.

I see a green fungus on many trees, it appears to be affecting the bark. I ? the effects of asphalt on our soil and the surrounding veg. and water, not to mention air quality. I fear the collapse of the economy and Americas work ethic may have put us all in grave danger of poisioning the very enviroment that provides us life. I’m afraid to keep looking , but look I shall.

I would suggest the following link: http://www.publictransportation.org/systems/

This website is from the American Public Transportation Association- What an excellent reference tool!

Meanwhile, the global ocean is assaulted by tons of sludge and trash, but no one I know dares to admit it. I guess it’s supposed to be a big secret (!)
