This Thursday on the Solari Report, I will be speaking with Dr. Riki Ott, the Alaskan marine toxicologist helping fisherman and residents in the Gulf of Mexico.
Riki, the former owner and operator of a fishing vessel in her home of Cordova, Alaska, helped lead the response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the effort to hold Exxon accountable, including two decades of litigation that went all the way to the Supreme Court.
Passionate about eliminating the corporate rights of personhood, Riki publishes a website that includes resources in support of her efforts in the Gulf and blogs at Huffington Post.
Riki inspires everyone around her to positive action, including me. It was Riki’s concern for the children in her family that inspired me to write Gifting to the Children We Love.
We have lots of ground to cover:
- what is happening to the people and living ecosystem of the Gulf?
- why dispersants? Why corexit? What are the impacts on people and places?
- the well kill - is it for real?
- the relief wells - will they work? If not, what then?
- the lessons of Exxon Valdez
- what can we do?
Remember to e-mail or post your questions for us before Thursday night, or ask them live through our web access. You can listen now through the web as well - no need to call in if you are coming in from other continents.
