The Nation magazine feature article on the BP Gulf oil disaster.

New Orleans, LA
Working on a grant provided by The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute, I am conducting original research for a new feature article which will run in The Nation magazine, likley in the second half of April, at the time of the two year anniversary of the start of the BP Gulf oil disaster. My research has taken me back down to the Gulf in February and March 2012 to cover what was supposed to be the February 27 start of the trial against BP and all of the companies involved in the disaster. Instead, I covered the start of what may be a lengthy settlement process. I am also conducting new interviews and research into the ongoing impacts of the disaster. I have written one commentary for The Nation on the settlement proceedings. Please look for the feature article likely in April.
