President Barack Obama’s top adviser on energy and climate issues, Florida native Carol Browner, will hold an invitation-only roundable meeting with community leaders at the Enoch Davis Center in St. Petersburg today. The meeting, scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., offers selected community leaders a chance to hear from Browner, who helped unveil a controversial report Wednesday that said most of the oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster is now gone. Many independent scientists scoffed at the report’s findings.
