Item description for David, Goliath and the Beach Cleaning Machine: How a Small Polluted Beach Town Fought an Oil Giant--And Won (Capital Currents) (Capital Currents) by Barbara Wolcott...

Written by Pulitzer-prize-nominee Barbara Wolcott, "David, Goliath and the Beach Cleaning Machine" is the hard-hitting story of a young lawyer's heroic quest to rally his town of fierce independents against the corporate giant that had polluted their town and brought on environmental disaster. Wolcott describes Rizzo's suit, the first of nearly sixty, including some filed by Ed Masry of Erin Brockovich fame, and how the town finally triumphed to the tune of $18 million in damages as well as an estimated $100-200 million for clean-up. As a result of the massive clean-up, beautiful Avila Beach has been almost totally leveled and the townspeople are fighting to save those buildings that represent their history and sense of place. Now that the town is in the spotlight as a model of environmental rescue, the beach cleaning machine has arrived!
