OR Books Rushes Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Title

deepwater.jpgOR Books and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) will team up to rush a book about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Entitled Deepwater Horizon: The Oil Disaster, Its Aftermath, and Our Future, publication is set for September 20, 2010.

NRDC is an environmental group with 1.3 million members, and executive director Peter Lehner will co-write the book with journalist Bob Deans. OR Books co-publisher John Oakes will also work closely on the project.

Lehner had this statement: “The book is not so much about BP as it is about how we got to the point where drilling in inacessible spots became hugely profitable for oil companies … There is a real need for an assessment of the situation that goes beyond criticizing one
company’s incompetence. Our oil addiction and how we get rid of it has to be at the heart of these discussions.”
