California Takes Another Look at Offshore Oil Drilling

Hosted by

Lakers fans filled the Los Angeles Coliseum today. We hear about an enormous celebration.  And, it's rare since the oil spill of 1969, but there's serious debate about drilling for oil off the coast of California. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, as Congress debates a new energy bill, the Obama White House releases dramatic new warnings about the increased impact of global warming.  We'll hear about the latest report and the prospects for legislation.
