Two Years Since Deepwater Horizon Disaster, Health Problems Persist
Two years ago today, the Deepwater Horizon exploded off the Gulf, setting off the Big Oozy. Even before the gusher was capped, the smells and sights of dispersants flying around South Louisiana made everyone on edge about their health. Well, this week in The Nation, Antonia Juhasz writes that those suspicions weren't unfounded. Still, like withthe oil pollution's effect on the ecosystem, the health impacts can't be understood until more research is conducted. Tomorrow at 3 p.m., Juhasz, the author of a Big Oozy book called Black Tide, will talk about the health of the Gulf Coast at Maple Street Book Shop's New Orleans Healing Center location. It's an Earth Day discussion about one of the largest affronts to the environment in recent history.
