From the Publisher:
A searing look at the human face of BP's disaster in the Gulf

The largest oil spill in American history is more than a story of ruined beaches, dead wildlife, corporate spin, political machinations, and financial fallout. It is a compelling human drama with people whose lives will forever be defined as "before" and "after the BP Gulf oil spill." Black Tide is the only book to tell this story through the perspective of people on all sides of the disaster, from those who lost their lives, loved ones, and livelihoods to those who made the policies that set the devastating event in motion, those who cut the corners that put corporate profits over people and the environment, and those whose have committed their lives to ensuring such an event never happens again.

  • Draws on the author's personal interviews from the Gulf and Washington, D.C. with dozens of people on the front lines of the disaster, from the living room of Sherri Revette, whose husband, Dewey, died on the Deepwater Horizon, to the deck of the Oceana where scientist Samantha Joye chases oil plumes, to the oil soaked beaches of Dauphin Island where environmentalist Casi Callaway fights for protection, to the halls of Congress, where Congressman Ed Markey struggles to hold BP to account
  • Takes an up-close look at the key players such as BP's former CEO and PR nightmare Tony Hayward, oil industry lead lobbyist Jack Gerard, Governor Bobby Jindal, Admiral Thad Allen, and President Barack Obama
  • Written by a leading oil industry expert who has already done a great deal of media to discuss the spill

Dramatic and compelling, Black Tide exposes the human failings and the human cost of a manmade disaster that will be with us for a very long time.
