Posted by Jennifer Cook on

Bob Graham is one of the most-successful politicians in Florida history, serving two terms as governor and three terms in the U.S. Senate.

This week on Metro Center Outlook, host Dr. Diane Tree sits down with Graham to talk about the 2010 BP oil spill, recognized as the worst marine environmental disaster in U.S. history. It resulted in 206 million gallons of oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico.

Bob Graham is the co-chair of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Graham shares more about offshore drilling and how it will affect our country, as well as the future of oil exploration.

“Although we are in the process of beginning to shift away from fossil fuels, even the most aggressive person supporting sustainable energy would agree that it’s going to be a long transition and that deep water petroleum and natural gas are going to be part of that bridge from where we have been to where we likely we be maybe a generation or two from now,” Graham states.

Metro Center Outlook airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9 a.m.
