Skip to comments.New Addition to California Coastal Nat. Monument

Check this link to a CBS broadcast of the new addition to a National Monument along the coast of California, just penned by Obama!
I wonder how many miles offshore this National Monument extends as US territory to preclude any oil development???
More private beach for the overlords...
The Buck stops at Obamas Desk.
Impeach Hussein Obama in 2014, PERIOD.
I agree. This seems a good use of federal preservation powers.
Impeachment gallows on the Capital Steps...treason is the crime...
Half of the entire state of Californicate is already controlled by government ( mostly Feds also state and locals). Marx wrote about putting the land into government hands and preventing ordinary people for ever owning or having any of their own. There are also vast additional miles of CA which are placed off limits by various fancy “ open space agreements “ and “conservation easements” and aggressive declarations of “ no development zones” on grounds of “ protecting species “ like salamanders and newts and horny toads. And similar arrangements. Not the only cause But one significant part of the cause why simple little yucky tacky Tract homes on small lots average around a million dineros or so in a number of. Pretty ordinary CA towns. So while one particular plot of land may very well be good to preserve, there is a much larger problem with government confiscation or acquisition of huge quantities of our land. Just saying.
If you were to see the area in question, and so few have, you might also support taking it out of service.
Just sayin' :)
You’re right. It would look so much better with high-rise condos right on the water’s edge.
God isn’t making any more magnificent coastline for us. 2.5 square miles is a flyspeck.
They should not be allowed to own more land in one state compared to the next.

My concern is that by federalizing the shoreline/coastline into a National Monument, just how far out to sea does the Feds declare riparian rights?
Do they take claim all the way out to 200 miles offshore? A mile offshore?? Something in between? Or does this declaration kill any chance of future development, anywhere.
At what point will private industry be able to develop mineral and oil wealth
Remember when Bubba declared the Escalante a national park? Closed down all coal mining for some of the finest coal in our nation. (Seems to me that one of his buddies had a claim to huge clean coal reserves, so the Toon picked up some serious coin from that stroke of a pen.)
i have no problem with that.
This is an area roughly the size of Central Park.
Note that the Forest Service owns a larger part of MI than of many nearby States.
After the Bammy shutdown performance, I suggest that the Feds start giving the States 5% of what the Feds own per year for 20 years or so.
Not quite a disinterested citizen.
Any rock sticking op out of the water is already protected.

“Federal Lands in the US”
Basically, when it came to admitting the Western States, the Feds were into taking “land bribes.” While certainly there are lands that should be preserved, They now own over 80% of Nevada and nearly 50% of California. That’s a travesty. And they can’t be trusted to keep their word. An oyster company in Drake’s Bay gave their property to the Golden Gate National Seashore in exchange for being allowed to continue to farm oysters ( you see almost nothing). Now the Feds are in court trying to kick the oyster farm off of their beds, even though they have a fifty year agreement to leave them alone.
“If you were to see the area in question, and so few have, you might also support taking it out of service.”
We make it a point to go to Mendocino at least once a year. It is a very special place. This small piece of the coastline deserves protection. It has nothing to do with keeping out oil drillers. And BTW I hate the CA Coastal Commission. They ARE unconscionable land grabbers. As is the Army Corps of Engineers.
(Note: I support most of the National Parks, though NOT the antics of late by the NPS managaement.)
