Interesting Media This Week

If you don't live in the Gulf Coast, it's easy to assume that the BP oil disaster really is over. The well was capped, the national media has mostly stopped reporting it, and BP is telling anyone that will listen that they have done their job of making us whole again. But the truth is this is an ongoing disaster with national significance. And we must keep vigilent about the restoration and recovery effort. Scientists are just starting to study the impacts and we won't know the true longer term impacts for years, even decades to come.

Here are just a few tidbits of media links about the aftermath of the BP oil disaster this week.
