Dr. Frank Alcock

Dr. Frank Alcock, Director of the Marine Policy Institute at Mote Marine Laboratory and Director of Environmental Studies and Associate Professor of Political Science at New College of Florida, joins ZOOM’D for a direct and unbiased look at the BP/Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and implications for the future. Frank reflects on the near- and long-term environmental damage and the impact on both energy policy and regulation going forward. With responses to the disaster ranging from calls for an American “Operation Dunkirk” to seizing of the moment with possibility of an “Obama End-to-Oil-Addiction Act,” all sides and potential outcomes of this tragedy must be understood and acted upon. Join Frank and ZOOM’D host John Schmidt for a clear look at “what is really going on” and suggestions for how we might all engage our leadership in responding to this tragedy and building a more desirable future.
