Joe Mueller, Marine Biologist at Marin College, says that the idea that shutting down the family-owned Drake’s Bay Oyster Farm will add nitrogen to the environment is “pure hokum” - and that the Drake’s Bay Oyster Farm’s oysters provide ZERO benefits to the environment. He also says there never were many oysters in Drake’s Bay in times past. (Mueller’s claim that there never were many oysters in Drake’s Bay is directly contradicted by the scientific evidence of Dr. Corey Goodman):
Mueller accuses Organic Locavore Kevin Lunny of using creosote (not found) and farming “invasive” Manila Clams (Manila Clams, although not native, are NOT classified as “invasive”).:
“The new protected area was unlike any other national park before — or since. Point Reyes ranchers and dairymen had been opposed to the park, so Congress crafted a compromise to allow them to stay. The federal government would buy out the farmers and then lease the land back to them so they could continue their agricultural traditions. Point Reyes National Seashore would strike a balance between recreation, wilderness preservation, and pastoral land use.
This arrangement continues today. More than two million people visit the park every year. What they find there is an eclectic landscape of fog-shrouded and moss-hung forests, pristine beaches, wind-swept dunes, tidal estuaries … and miles of open rangeland grazed by cows and some chickens. While the park’s northern and southern sections at Tomales Point and Inverness Ridge are designated as wilderness, the interior of park (about one third of the park’s 71,000 acres) is what’s called the “pastoral zone.” It is a working landscape of (mostly organic) dairies and ranches that supply milk, butter, and meat to Northern Californians.” : (Here)

Professor of Marine Biology Joe Mueller, recipient of the prestigious Twillinger Award, will appear on the Sedona Dreams show on 10/12/13, 9 to 10:00 P.M. Pacific Time & respond to the 10/5/13 interview of Locavore & Organic Grass- Fed Beef producer, Kevin Lunny.
Dr. Corey Goodman will appear on the Sedona Dreams show on 10/19/13 to challenge Joe Mueller’s claims made on the 10/12/13 show. Joe Mueller is invited to be on the show with Dr. Goodman, and respond to Dr. Goodman’s evidence.
