Tomorrow is the six-month anniversary of the explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico. The first book on the BP oil disaster has been released. It’s called In Deep Water – The Anatomy of a Disaster, the Fate of the Gulf, and How to End our Oil Addiction. It is co-authored by Peter Lehner, the executive director of the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Tomorrow, on the six-month anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon explosion, we will bring you the second half of this interview where Lehner talks about how American consumers are partly to blame for the disaster, and how the country can begin to wean itself off its oil addiction.
