Christian Thomas Works to Protect his Home State of West Virginia

Christian had a choice: The Peace Corps or SkyTruth. He chose SkyTruth.

“It was no contest,” Christian Thomas told me when I asked him about choosing between the Peace Corps and SkyTruth. Born and raised near Shepherdstown, West Virginia, Christian first met SkyTruth President John Amos at the Shepherdstown Farmer’s Market when he was a student at West Virginia University. When John learned that Christian was studying geography and environmental geoscience, he encouraged Christian to send his resume to SkyTruth.


We launched this site in February, 2012 so that we could start to collect the many reports that we have published over the years in one place to make it easier for people to find and compare them.  This site is still a work in progress – we will be publishing all new oil spill reports here and we will be gradually collecting past reports here as time and resources permit.
