Discover Cal: Oil Spill Aftermath

Oil Spill Aftermath
Environmental Science and Corporate Responsibility

Recovering from the explosion and spill that resulted in 4.9 million barrels of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico — a wound in the earth that could not be staunched for nearly three months — requires our best minds. Discover Cal offers perspectives from Berkeley experts about the effects on the environment and efforts to make oil companies more careful, accountable, and socially responsible. Speakers include Terry Hazen, head of the Ecology Department, Center for Environmental Biotechnology at the Joint BioEnergy Institute; Kellie McElhaney, founding faculty director of the Center for Responsible Business, Haas School of Business; and Thomas Azwell, doctoral researcher at UC Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources.
