The new online short-documentary series Journey OnEarth follows correspondent Roshini Thinakaran, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, as she reports about the people most impacted by pollution, oil spills, toxic chemicals, and communities coping with climate change across the country.
In the debut episode, “Hunting for Oil,” Thinakaran looks at the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon disaster through the eyes of the people trying to understand the impact of the spill.
What they find may help hold BP accountable for one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history.
