Larry Everest “First Hand from the Gulf: A Capitalist Oil Disaster....A System Not Fit To Be Caretaker of the Planet”

Presentation, video and discussion with Larry Everest, author of Behind the Poison Cloud – Union Carbide’s Bhopal Massacre; and Oil, Power & Empire, who lived in the Gulf for four months organizing stopgulfoildisaster.org and reporting for Revolution newspaper.

* The BP oil disaster up close – devastating ecosystems, shattering lives

* How capitalism and profit-in-command created the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history

* Why the Obama administration and BP lied about the scope of the disaster and BP’s criminally inadequate efforts to stop it – and why they now claim millions of gallons of crude have magically disappeared and the disaster is over

* Why the U.S. is compelled to “drill baby drill” and resume dangerous deep water drilling – before the Deepwater Horizon disaster has even been fully studied

* How a revolutionary socialist society would end addiction to fossil fuels by transforming the structure of industrial production, agriculture and transport (for background see also Some Key Principles of Socialist Sustainable Development)
