Sophia Bush sat down with Los Angeles’ KTLA News to discuss the devastating BP oil spill. The self-professed “greenie” said she was traumatized when she saw images coming in from the Gulf and she had a hunch that the public wasn’t getting the full story as to the extent of the damage.
Wanting to see the disaster zone for herself, last week Bush took a trip to Louisiana with Global Green USA. “I went down there angry and came back absolutely enraged,” said the One Tree Hill actress.
After sharing her experiences in the Gulf with the KTLA news team, the 27-year-old encouraged concerned citizens to visit Global Green’s website and sign a petition for a green future for the Gulf Coast that will be sent to President Obama.
Bush says the spill is a reminder that this is “the price we pay for dirty energy.”
