Hunting for Oil: Risks and Rewards
Hunting for Oil: Risks and Rewards

Listen
AIR DATE: June 4, 2012

Host Alex Chadwick tackles one of the most important energy questions facing America: Are we running out of oil? It's not an easy question to answer, and BURN travels to some of the country's most important petroleum exploration sites in an effort to understand what's at stake.

This hour long special coincides with the second anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Alex visits the Gulf to ask where did all that oil go? Is the seafood safe to eat? And how are the people and ecosystems of the Gulf holding up?

This program is part of a series on energy called BURN: An Energy Journal.
