The Gulf Coast 10 Years After Hurricane Katrina and Five Years after the BP Deep Horizon Spill:An Inverview with Wilma Subra, Environmental Scientist and Community Advocate

Wilma Subra has been on the front lines of hurricane and environmental disasters in the Gulf Coast for more than three decades- from rescuing people after a hurricane to analyzing samples of sediment sludge after storms and spills to understand toxic exposure for communities, Subra has fist-hand knowledge of how well the environment and communities have recovered since Katrina and the BP spill. She doesn't paint a rosy picture in this interview with CLEAN.

Funding Essential to Continue Our Work

As many of you know, CLEAN has been going through a transition since Jane Dale Owen, inspiration, found and primary funder of CLEAN, died a year ago last June. Her death was unexpected, and we all needed time to reflect on what this means for CLEAN. We continue to be enthusiastic about continuing this work. This year, we renewed our mission and our focus:

CLEAN’s Mission
To provide information, education and advocacy for sustainable solutions to the critical environmental issues of our time.
Our Focus

  • To be a useful resource of news and information about the critical environmental issues we are facing today
  • Increase awareness about the science that proves the connections between toxic exposure and health impacts
  • Partner with other organizations and agencies to have a greater impact
  • Develop a CLEAN Team of young people, national experts and community leaders to do more outreach and advocacy work as part of the Jane Dale Owen Environmental Action Project

We Can’t Do It Without You

Sustainable Living Tip of the Month

Do Your Part for the Clean Power Plan
In August, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a plan to cut carbon pollution fat existing power plants. All of us can be part of this effort to reduce the use of fossil fuels and mitigate climate change. Here are three small changes that can make a big difference:

  • Adjust the thermostat in your home and office to reduce energy use.
  • Find ways to reduce energy used for transportation -- combine trips, walk bike and use public transit when available. When buying a new car, consider cars that get higher gas mileage and check out hybrids and electric cars.
  • Switch to energy-saving appliances when it’s time to buy a new refrigerator, washer/dryer or air-conditioning system. Turn off lights, computers and other things that us electricty when you’re not using it.

Not only do these changes save energy, over the long-term, they save money too!
