Lisa Margonelli: The political chemistry of oil
17:14 · Filmed June 2010 at TEDxOilSpill · Subtitles available in 23 languages

In the Gulf oil spill's aftermath, Lisa Margonelli says drilling moratoriums and executive ousters make for good theater, but distract from the issue at its heart: our unrestrained oil consumption.
