WATCH: Riki Ott on The Riz Khan Show: With Government’s Help, BP Is Censoring the Media

Posted By dpacheco On June 11, 2010 @ 9:33 am In Nature & Environment | No Comments

Marine toxicologist Dr. Riki Ott [1], author of Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, appeared on the Al Jazeera English program The Riz Khan Show to discuss BP’s failed attempts to stop the oil leaking into the gulf, their censorship of the media, the federal government’s collusion, and the health effects of the toxic crude and the chemical dispersants on wildlife and on cleanup workers.

Read Dr. Ott’s piece on the Huffington Post: From the Ground: BP Censoring Media, Destroying Evidence [4]

About the book: Author Riki Ott, a rare combination of commercial salmon “fisherm’am” and PhD marine biologist, describes firsthand the impacts of oil companies’ broken promises when the Exxon Valdez spills most of its cargo and despoils thousands of miles of shore. Ott illustrates in stirring fashion the oil industry’s 20-year trail of pollution and deception that predated the tragic 1989 spill and delves deep into the disruption to the fishing community of Cordova over the following 19 years. In vivid detail, she describes the human trauma coupled inextricably with that of the sound’s wildlife and its long road to recovery.
