What: Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Implications for our Oceans…and our Future

OMSI invites the community to learn more about the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and its implications for ocean ecosystems, communities, and future energy development. Panelists will discuss a recent scientific exploration led by the international marine conservation organization Oceana, as well as the role of policy and community development in energy production and the missing pieces that need to be put in place. Panelists include senior scientist and research chemist Dr. Jeffrey Short, spill response and policy expert Jim Ayers, environmental attorney Whit Sheard, and PDX 2 Gulf Coast Leader, Mike Rosen, Ph.D.
