I won't ever live in California again. I lived in Chula Vista for 6 months. Too much overhead, I love it but I'll just visit instead,

The plovers have been an area of contention here for decades.
My dad was the maintenance director at the local UC school and he told me all the [BS] the professor in charge of that "study" tried to get away with. Moved in on the bluffs and it became her little sanctuary that the University had the privilege of paying for and maintaining.
For me, that's one of the most irritating aspects of land use debates. Without good data, good decisions can't be made. If any side is allowed to base their position on hand waving & tears, the outcome is dubious.Some things I have learned over the years and I am happy to see some if it displayed here. Question every statemrnt made and ask for scientific proof, check the science and conclusion. Many times people express feelings for facts.
Science is a tool, and just like any tool, it can be used properly or improperly. If someone isn't willing to scientifically approach a subject, then it just becomes a subjective opinion fest, where the most popular opinion wins. If that's how you feel, this was over before it began because the Closers already have opinion and numbers on their side.Science in today's world is not on facts but who's footing the bill..Take a lesson from the Global warming debacle.
Ok, prove it. Good luck with that.The dust blowing off the dunes isn't a problem science is needed to figure out..its pretty simple the dust blows off the dunes when the wind blows..the dust blows if people are using the beach or if nobody is using the beach.
I don't think you understand, or want to understand, so I'll leave you be.It is that simple..Sit on the beach and watch it with your own eyes. I honestly don't need science to tell me the wind is why the sand is blowing. Science isn't always the answer in fact in most case science is the problem..That is unless you feel man can control the environment and weather. Of course man can't give you a reliable weather forecast.
I have driven by Pismo. I'm not into what occurs there, but that's immaterial to a discussion about keeping access open to Pismo, or access open to any other place. Maybe you haven't understood that point, either.How much time have you spent on the dunes in Pismo?
