TEDxOilSpill and our Energy Future

TED, remember the “E” stands for environment, is taking on the Gulf Oil Spill today with TEDxOilSpill, a self-organized event with a TED-like experience. From the event web site:

TEDxOilSpill will tackle the tough questions raised by the recent and ongoing environmental catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. Topics will include mitigation of the spill and the impending cleanup efforts; energy alternatives; policy and economics; as well as new technology that can help us build a self-reliant culture.

Speakers include Oil on the Brian author Lisa Margonelli, Rocky Mountain Institute Co-Founder Amory Lovins, the pseudonymous author of @BPGlobalPR Leroy Stick and many more. For those of you who, like me, are not in Washington, D.C. today, you can watch the proceedings on livestream. But tune in fast, the event started this morning and ends at the end of the day.
