Salt, Oil and Carbon
Jane Lubchenco, Administrator, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Nancy Sutley, Chair, Council on Environmental Quality, the White House
How well is the U.S. government managing the BP oil debacle? Will stricter review of offshore oil drilling hurt the economy? Where did all the oil go? Oil sloshing around the Gulf of Mexico is just one disaster unfolding in the world's oceans. Trash heaps, acidification, and declining fish stocks all point to an ecosystem out of balance. A new national oceans policy aims for the first time to craft a unified approach to managing oceans off America's shores. What will that achieve? Join two key players in the BP oil saga to hear what the Obama administration is doing to clean up the Gulf of Mexico and better manage our oceans going forward.
