Gulf Spill

Ocean Conservancy's Takahashi-Kelso discusses environmental, economic impacts of spill

As Alaska Commissioner of Environmental Conservation during the Exxon Valdez oil spill, Dennis Takahashi-Kelso was involved with the environmental assessment of that spill and subsequent policy changes. Should the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, created after the Exxon spill, be amended? How does the recent BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico compare to Exxon Valdez? During today's OnPoint, Takahashi-Kelso, now executive vice president at the Ocean Conservancy, discusses the latest developments from the Gulf and Washington.
