President Barack Obama has proposed opening up new areas for offshore drilling, including in the Atlantic. For this month's Environmental Outlook, Diane and her guests discuss the prospects for finding oil and gas offshore, and the environmental and safety concerns.
Diane talks with EPA Administrator Christie Todd Whitman about environmental issues: the Pentagon’s requests for exemptions from certain environmental laws, new rules for off-road diesel vehicles, the "Clear Skies" initiative, and more. After talking with Ms. Whitman, Diane will be joined by environmental reporter Eric Pianin of the "Washington Post" and Jonathan Adler, columnist for "National Review Online" and Assistant Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
