Riki Ott - Think Tankers and What Comes Along With Them
Riki Ott, oil toxicologist, shares her personal story of the Exxon Valdez spill, weaving in the stories of accidental activists from the BP disaster, the Enbridge tar sands spill, and more. Riki shows the devastating costs of our fossil fuel dependency in communities across North America. Her stories tell what ordinary people are doing to create more self-reliant, sustainable, and democratic communities. Riki engages the audience to imagine what it would take to transition off fossil fuels and confront the dangerous expansion of corporate power -- and inspires people to take action. Riki gave this presentation in communities along the pipeline corridor in August 2012.
