▶ Massive Oil Spills, Exploding Bomb Trains, Hazardous Chemicals, Poisoned Water – What’s the Plan?

By Dr. Riki Ott, Chicago Independent Television | Video  March 27, 2015

It’s been 21 years since the EPA considered the rules that govern Oil Spill Response. In that time, our technologies have advanced significantly, while the rules surrounding them remained unchanged. Dangerous dispersants, unconventional oil and gas, and risky transportation methods have created perilous, sometimes deadly, situations.

Now is our opportunity to create meaningful change. Riki Ott, PhD, discusses the ten key points of the proposed revisions to the National Contingency Plan for Oil Spills, and encourages us to take action by submitting public comments to the EPA by April 22, 2015.

DR. RIKI OTT

Riki Ott is a marine toxicologist and activist in Cordova, Alaska. Ott was frequently introduced as an “oil spill expert” in her many media appearances during the height of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill news coverage.[2][3][4] After graduating with a doctorate in sedimentary toxicology from the University of Washington, Ott moved to Alaska and started a fishing business. When the Exxon Valdez oil spill disrupted the local fishing-based economy, she became an environmental activist. Since the spill, she has participated in legal and public relations disputes with theExxon company.

Ott has more recently become involved in the movement to end corporate personhood through a constitutional amendment. She has also repeatedly visited the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the spill, which, she argues, is causing health consequences similar to the 1989 Exxon spill. (Wikipedia)
