The Climate Crisis on the North Coast (& what we can do about it)
Clam Beach has been on Heal the Bay's “Beach Bummer” list of California's most polluted beaches for years, getting an 'F' for water quality on the latest Beach Report Card.
But after years of research, we now have a better sense of the source of this pollution thanks to a new study by Humboldt County's Public Health Lab Manager, Dr. Jeremy Corrigan.

Humboldt Baykeeper’s Jen Kalt is one of nine women featured in the Times-Standard's Monday Magazine, a new publication celebrating local women in business.
Kalt says that the lack of enforcement of many environmental laws in Humboldt County is “severe” and criticized decision makers who she said have “enabled” businesses to operate outside of those laws.
“I think that’s an injustice to the people who believe in running their business in ways that follow the laws and protect the environment and community,” she said.
“Industries come and go, but the bay and rivers, if we destroy them, they’re gone forever.”
