Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
"National oil spill expert and author Riki Ott, Ph.D., is a marine toxicologist, author, and activist who is spearheading national efforts to update the national contingency plan. Her latest book is Not One Drop (Chelsea Green). "

Riki Ott recounts her experiences and lessons learned fighting the oil industry. From surviving the Exxon Valdez spill to traveling North America working with communities affected by oil to her current rewriting the National Contingency Plan for oil spill response.

Dr. Riki Ott was invited by Tar Sands Free Midwest to chair a strategy meeting to develop an action plan in response to the BP Whiting spill into Lake Michigan in late March. Crucial questions still need to be answered. Riki offered her oil spill expertise as a guide to effected parties and water quality activists to make sure that this malfunction at BP doesn't continue to be thrown under the rug. Both Chicago area and NW Indiana residents are organizing to prevent British Petroleum's further degradation of Lake Michigan and its surrounding communities.

Several short film clips were used during the presentation. They are presented here, shortened in length to provide listeners with a sense of their content as the speaker refers to them. Full versions available from Dr. Riki Ott.

"Ideally, science drives public policy and education; as science changes, so should the science-based laws and lore. But I had learned, while growing up in Wisconsin and watching my father in his successful battle to ban the systemic poison DDT, that when ordinary people understand the science, the lore changes, then the laws change." Riki Ott
