Changing the Endgame, an Earth Week Webcast with Dr. Riki Ott

Marine toxicologist Riki Ott, author of Not One Drop: Courage and Betrayal in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, will take part in a webcast teach-in taking place April 18th-22nd for Earth Week.

This three-part, on-demand web cast, entitled “Changing the Endgame: America’s Energy Future”, will revisit the Gulf of Mexico – and other communities disproportionately bearing the cost of America’s fossil fuel dependency – to unite Americans in a serious commitment to transitioning away from fossil fuels and confronting the dangerous expansion of corporate power.

  • Discover the real Gulf oil disaster story.
  • Learn the devastating costs of our fossil fuel dependency in communities across America.
  • Explore what ordinary people are doing to create self-reliant communities and real democracy.
  • Listen to people who are making a difference and taking back power over corporations.
  • Practice democracy skills.
  • Help make sure the outcome of the BP Gulf disaster is not a return to “oil business as usual”.
