Environmental advocates were stunned by the discovery of potentially half a million barrels of DDT, a now-banned insecticide, off the coast of Los Angeles. Join us for a webinar focused on the effects of this disaster on our ocean and marine mammals, and what the future looks like for clean-up and accountability.
The webinar will feature the scientists who discovered the barrels from UC Santa Barbara and UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography. They’ll be joined by experts from the Center who have been at the forefront of cancer research in California sea lions, linked to pollutants including DDT.
The webinar will be moderated by Los Angeles Times’ Rosanna Xia, whose reporting on the DDT dumping broke the news wide open on the biggest environmental controversy at large today.
Moderator: Rosanna Xia, The Los Angeles Times
