Riz Khan interviews Carl Safina, Mike Robichaux and Cherri Foytlin--Al Jazeerah English
What effect did last year's BP oil spill have on changing government and energy company policies? And how can we assess the damage of the spill when so many conflicting scientific reports are continuing to be published?On Tuesday's Riz Khan Show, we talk to Mike Robichaux, a Louisiana physician who has been treating patients suffering from mystery illnesses believed to be caused by the effects of the accident; Cherri Foytlin, a woman who walked from New Orleans to Washington to highlight the suffering of victims of the spill; and Carl Safina, a prominent ecologist and author of "A Sea in Flames: The Deepwater Horizon Oil Blowout." You can watch the show at 1930 GMT on Al Jazeera English. Repeats will air next day at 0430 GMT, 0830 GMT and 1430 GMT.
