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).

After kicking off my book tour in San Francisco, I headed to London with Gulf Coast residents harmed by the disaster to attend BP's annual shareholder meeting. Join me for a special event in Brooklyn:

Monday, April 18
Black Tide Book Launch with Global Exchange, IVAW, and Greenpeace
powerHouse Arena
37 Main St.
Brooklyn, NY

Celebrate the launch of my book alongside our allies in the movement, Iraq Veterans Against the War and Greenpeace, with a discussion of real "energy security" at a time of three wars, rising oil and gasoline prices, and renewed calls for "drill baby drill" in response.

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 New York and thank you for your continued support!
