Out of Sight, Out of Mind Interview Series: Dr. Lee Clarke

June 2nd, 2011 – We spoke about the 2010 oil spill with Dr. Lee Clarke, Rutgers professor and author of “Worst Cases: Terror and Catastrophe in the Popular Imagination”.  As Clarke tells us, this sort of event is nothing new, nor is the questionable decision to employ chemical dispersants as a response.

Here, Clarke tells us about the “Newfoundland Experiment”, in which an oil spill was simulated in the open ocean to test the efficacy of the available cleanup methods.
