Event Photos and Video from An Energy Symposium organized by the AJC
March 19, 2008 | The American Jewish Committee
The Sallan Foundation's Nancy Anderson, James Woolsey, former director of the CIA and Carol Murphy, Director of the Alliance for Clean Energy, New York were united in calling for an energy policy powerful enough to produce significant cuts in carbon emissions while reducing the vulnerability of the nation's electric power grid.
Anderson highlighted the impacts of civc and individual engagement while the other speakers focused on strategic, legislative, and technology leadership. Woolsey urged industry, government and citizens alike to move away from a dependence on oil while Murphy pinpointed the value of attaining New York State's 25% renewable energy goal.
The AJC's goal of transforming its national headquarters in midtown Manhattan into an ultra-energy efficient LEED-EB building shows the power of civic vision. Hats off!
