The BP Oil Spill is growing by more than 200,000 gallons of crude oil every day and is already larger than the size of Puerto Rico. It’s an environmental disaster poised to outdo Exxon Valdez, and cutting off the leak will take months, according to government officials.
Facts like these leave many environmentalists and citizens feeling helpless and angry. Tonight on EcoChat, we’re addressing questions and concerns about the spill and evaluating potential relief strategies for the Gulf region. Coral reef expert and speaker for The Climate Project, Kent Taylor will join EcoChat to address the ecological impact of this tragedy.
Additionally, previous EcoChat guest and alternative energy whiz Bruce Becker will be phoning in to give us his opinion about the current relief operations and what should happen next.
