“The events of April 20 triggered an environmental catastrophe of historic proportions, a catastrophe that propelled the nation into unknown territory,” said Dr. Jane Lubchenco, addressing the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources Law Summit in New Orleans Sept. 30.
Lubchenco, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration administrator, outlined the technological challenges of stopping and tracking the release of hydrocarbons into the Gulf of Mexico. “Let me be clear,” she said. “Despite these unknowns, the entire federal family … is deeply committed to understanding the impact of this spill on the health of the Gulf and the millions of people who depend on it for their lives and livelihood, and we are committed to full restoration of the Gulf and its people.” For an full transcript of Lubchenco’s speech, visit http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2010/20101001_lubchenco_seer.html.
