Preventing the Next Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster (w/ Healthy Gulf's Cynthia Sarthou, Oceana's Diane Hoskins, and Vipe Desai)
Manage episode 326115725 series 2542469
Introducing a new four-part series, Waves of Change, in collaboration with Oceana. Over the next four weeks, we'll explore the climate, economic, and environmental justice impacts of offshore drilling and plastics.
12 years after the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, fossil fuel companies are drilling deeper than ever before off of America's coasts. Lawmakers seem to have learned little from the oil rig explosion that killed 11 people and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf over 87 days. However, today's guests are pushing regulators and businesses to do more to prevent the next offshore oil disaster.
Cynthia Sarthou is the Executive Director of Healthy Gulf, which is focused on protecting the Gulf and everyone and everything that calls the Gulf home.
Diane Hoskins is Oceana’s Campaign Director focused on stopping offshore drilling.
