Montgomery Advertiser Commentary - The 100th Day

Check out my latest op-ed on the Gulf Oil Spill. It was published in the Montgomery Advertiser on the 100th Day of the disaster. Here is an excerpt:

"In some places the effects may not be obvious for a year or two. Because of the toxicity and the oxygen deprivation caused by the spill in the waters right now, whole generations of fish, crabs and shrimp will be impacted this year, next year and beyond. Life in the Gulf as we know it, our estuaries, the beaches and wildlife will change, in some cases disappear altogether. Whole links in the food chain are broken."
