Sierra Club Thursday: BP Oil Spill Status: Is the Gulf Safer? Loren Steffy

Loren Steffy, former business writer for the Houston Chroncle, speaks about the BP Oil Spill and whether the Gulf is safer now at the Galveston Bay Sierra Club meeting Wednesday, July 17 at 6:30 pm at the Bay Are Community Center in Clear Lake Park (across street from Clear Lake), 5002 NASA Parkway, Seabrook.
