Reality Report: Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico


Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico are a major concern for the whole United States as our economy relies on the fossil fuels and their byproducts from the region, and Gulf ports for global trade. This program explores how our anxiety over these storms reflects the lack of resiliency in our current energy and trade systems. Guests are Nina Tassin, a resident of Donaldsonville Louisiana, and Nate Hagens of University of Vermont and The Oil Drum.
