Environmental Defense Fund Director gives long-term view of BP oil spill

By on June 29th, 2010

BP and the coast guard sent oil-scooping skimming ships in the Gulf of Mexico back to shore because nasty weather was churning up rough seas and powerful winds. On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden took a firsthand look at the oil spill response in the Pensacola area. Florida emergency managers are fighting to keep oil and tar from the massive BP spill off a more than 100-mile section of panhandle beaches. WUFT-FM-FM’s Whitney Jones spoke with a senior director for the Environmental Defense Fund, Paul Wilson. Wilson says the real environmental effects from the spill won’t be known for years.
