Description - Decommissioning the Brent Spar by Paula Owen

The Brent Spar saga has become an environmental icon of the late nineties and its recent conclusion will have repercussions into the twenty-first century. Like the Newbury Bypass and the Exxon Valsez, this is one environmental issue with real resonance for the public. Decommissioning the Brent Spar chronicles the events leading up to the recent decision to recycle the offshore installation in a Norwegian fjord; The Greenpeace campaign to stop it being dumped at sea; the repercussions of Shell's decision to abort the decommissioning at the eleventh hour and the dialogue processes that have occurred to attempt to resolve the issue. This book will give a balanced, impartial account of the while situation to the present day. its key aim being to inform the reader about the facts and mechanisms of the dialogue process and the need to approach decisions in a different way. Readers will benefit from an account of the mistakes made by both sides, the input from government, the scientific community, the press and public, and can apply this knowledge to future environmental issues.
