Freedom From Oil
Dear Supporter,

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig — leased by BP and owned by Transocean — exploded off the coast of Louisiana, killing eleven men, and unleashing a 210 million gallon oil gusher. It became the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again.

Join us in working to ensure it never does.

As the one-year anniversary of the disaster approaches, I am proud to announce the release of my new book, Black Tide: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill (Wiley).

I kicked off my book tour in San Francisco this past weekend and am now in London with Gulf Coast residents harmed by the disaster for BP's annual shareholder meeting. My tour then takes me to the East Coast with two upcoming events in DC:

Saturday, April 16
PowerShift 2011 Conference
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
801 Mt. Vernon Place NW

Friday, April 22
Earth Day at Bus Boys & Poets
Bus Boys and Poets
2021 14th Street (at V)

At PowerShift, I will participate in an exciting plenary with leading Gulf Coast activists on the BP oil disaster, restoring the Gulf Coast, and moving beyond dirty energy.

One week later, I will celebrate Earth Day at Bus Boys & Poets with John Hocevar of Greenpeace and Peter Galvin of the Center for Biological Diversity.

Black Tide is based on hundreds of personal interviews I conducted during my time spent embedded within those Gulf Coast communities most impacted by the disaster. It is a searing look at the human face of this tragedy.

As a special offer to you, if you donate $50 or more to support the Energy Program we'll send you a signed copy of Black Tide along with your Global Exchange membership. A Global Exchange membership comes with great benefits, including free entry to our Green Festivals. Donate today!

Help us spread the word about the tour by sharing the locations with your friends. See the full tour schedule here.

I hope to see you in DC and thank you for your continued support!
