Responses to the Oil Spill: Panel and Public Forum

The ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico opens up many questions: What should BP’s role be in the cleanup? What is BP's legal liability? Is greater regulation of offshore drilling enough, or should there be a complete moratorium? How do we eliminate fossil fuel dependence and embrace renewable energy? Should NYC act now to reduce our consumption of oil? How do we make this change happen--public education, or street protests? To succeed, we must answer these questions at the national, state, city, and personal levels.

Public brainstorming, starting with brief remarks from representatives of sponsoring organizations, moving into discussion groups to formulate possible actions, and finishing with feedback from all attendees. This is your chance to learn how New Yorkers can get involved and make a difference!
