On the one-year anniversary of the BP oil spill yesterday, Disaster on the Horizon author Bob Cavnar appeared on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show to discuss what we have (and haven’t) learned since this most devastating of environmental tragedies.
A 30-year veteran of the oil and gas industry, Bob is all too familiar with the dangers and risks associated with offshore drilling. In an op-ed published in the Houston Chronicle, he wrote, “The last year has been an odyssey where the disaster in the Gulf led many to hope that finally we were going to focus on a comprehensive energy policy, improve safety and protect the environment. To the disappointment of many, including me, none of these objectives was reached.”
Watch the video below for more of Bob’s knowing assessment.
