Ethics and the Gulf Oil Spill

Ethicist Paul Wolpe calls for a national discussion about the moral implications of the Gulf Oil Spill.  He urges us to consider all dimensions of an ethical response to the spill.   He also asks us to consider our own contributions to this crisis.  Ultimately, he claims that we need to understand the values by which we should make decisions about how to respond in the face of this disaster. 

Listen to this video clip of an interview with Wolpe and help us contribute to this national discussion.  Speak up about the ethical issues facing us as individuals, as a country, and as a global community.
