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.

Register here for Changing the Endgame, hosted by Dr. Riki Ott and John Francis, available on demand April 18 – 22, 2011.

  • 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”.
