The Oil Spill’s Unseen Culprits, Victims

— tags:

Carl Safina explores how the ocean is changing, and what those changes mean for wildlife and for people. In the 1990s he helped lead campaigns to ban high-seas driftnets, re-write US federal fisheries law, work toward international conservation of tunas, sharks and other fishes, and achieve passage of a UN global fisheries treaty.

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

The annual TED conference held in Long Beach is a gathering of some of the world's most innovative thinkers who come to share and communicate their ideas. Videos of the speakers are available online at www.ted.com.
