Media Coverage of A Sea in Flames

It’s been a busy week here on Long Island. Carl’s new book, A Sea in Flames, released last Tuesday,  has gotten a lot of press (including editor’s pick in the New York Times Book Review this past Sunday), and he did many interviews marking the one year anniversary of the Deep Water Horizon blowout in the Gulf. Here are links to a few of them.


In an interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now, Carl explains the ins and outs of how the oil spill happened.
