"We put the murderer in charge of the crime scene." — on BP’s clean-up of the Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf oil spill dwarfs comprehension, but we know this much: it's bad. Carl Safina scrapes out the facts in this cross-examination, arguing that the consequences will stretch far beyond the Gulf -- and many so-called solutions are making the situation worse.

Safina is author of five books, and more than a hundred scientific and popular publications on ecology and oceans, including featured work in National Geographic and The New York Times. His first book, Song for the Blue Ocean, was chosen a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. His second, Eye of the Albatross, won the John Burroughs Medal for nature writing and was chosen by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine as the year's best book for communicating science.
