    “This week Joss Garman and guest presenter Graham Thompson discuss recent direct actions in Aberdeen and London.

    “Joss speaks to Dan Glass and Tilly Gifford of the Climate 9, a group of activists currently on trial in Scotland for an action taken at Aberdeen airport. The group closed down the taxi way in order to reduce the total number of emissions from flights that day. Their decision to cease their protest was controversially based on a false police report that they were endangering the life of a new born awaiting air transfer.

    “Also on this week is James Marriot of Platform London. James discusses his part in the recent protest at the Tate Britain calling for an end to BP’s sponsorship of the arts. Marroitt discusses how corporations like BP use sponsorship packages in order to obtain “social license to operate” or in other words, to distract the public from the environmentally detrimental activities that drive their profits.”

    “Today Deep Fried Planet premieres on Resonance FM. Presented by long time environmental activists Ben Stewart and Joss Garman, this is the first in a weekly series of discussions about current environmental affairs.

    “Stewart and Garman discuss the BP oil spill – “America’s worst environmental disaster in history” with Joseph Romm and Duncan Exley. Romm is a Senior Fellow at the Centre for American Progress, Assistant Secretary of state for Energy in the Clinton Administration and once described by Time magazine as the web’s most influential climate blogger. Exley is Director of FairPensions, an organization that lobbies to promote ethical pensions investment in the UK.

    “As BP’s share price tumbles, should your pension fund be disinvesting in fossil fuels altogether as they increasingly turn into potential liabilities? How will the BP spill effects Obama’s attempts at clean energy reform, and how might it impact the power of the Republican Tea Party movement?”

    BP?  Haliburton?  Transocean?  The corrupt Mineral Management Service?  Interior Secretary Ken Salazar?  President Obama himself?

    This piece was published by The Ecologist on 17 May 2010.

    On 20 April BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded. 11 workers were killed in the blast. According to the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), the resultant oil spill is now the largest in US history – larger even than the infamous Exxon Valdez disaster. From BP’s original estimate of 1,000 barrels per day, experts now estimate that the rate could be nearer 70,000 barrels per day threatening the lives of many species – including many already endangered – in an area  of rich biodiversity in the fragile Mississippi River Delta ecosystem.
