Changed the game by … walking the Gulf Coast to uncover BP’s cover-up attempts. Ott is an activist and trained marine toxicologist who has for many years worked to expose the public health problems caused by oil spills. This past spring, she took her camera and expertise to the Gulf of Mexico, gathering stories and images of the damage wrought by BP. When the Coast Guard stonewalled would-be observers, when BP destroyed evidence of animal carcasses, when the public health dangers piled up and clean-up workers were told to avoid health precautions, Ott sounded the alarm by going on television and posting her reporting online. How it all started: Ott decided to become an activist after the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill off the coast of Alaska; she was working in the region as a commercial “fisherma’am.” Must-click link: Riki’s blogs
Riki is the author of two books, Not One Drop, and Sound Truths and Corporate Myth$. Find out more in our bookstore!
