This segment from the April 6, 2012, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features an update on Bay Jimmy in Barataria Bay, one of the hardest hit areas by the 2010 BP Oil Spill. During a tour of the area, David Muth of the National Wildlife Federation discusses their discovery of oil pockets and the possibility that clean-up efforts in the marshes would do more harm than good to the wetlands.
