Forum 2015: Today's Fossil Fuels and the Future of our Children's Health
"Hear no evil, see no evil, there is no evil"  

Putting our heads in the sand, ignoring all the bad news about climate change won't make it go away; especially when it comes to learning more about what may negatively impact our most precious and most vulnerable of populations, our children.

2015 is a seminal year for climate solutions.  While the "Road to Paris" may formally end in mid-December when countries under United Nations auspices announce their plans to reduce greenhouse gases and address climate change; this is in fact only the beginning.  We must loudly push our government representatives, at every level, to go farther, and go faster. Armed with the facts, each of us can and MUST be part of the solutions, especially when it comes to our kids, their health and their future.

This forum presents a dynamic and unique opportunity to learn about cutting edge science that brings us not just knowledge but hope; the hope of curing diseases we didn't know were curable and preventing those we didn't know we could prevent.

The forum is organized around three topics, which tell an important story:  

The Science - state of the art research showing multi-generational impacts on health from conception on into adulthood.
The Mothers' Voices, Community Impacts -  representing different communities from around the country, and  their struggles for change.
The Politics of Change -  social justice and how change can be effectively created through peaceful civil disobedience; what laws are already in place or can be put into action to bring about rapid movement towards sustainable solutions.

There will be a q & a with all panelists at the end of the forum, our moderator is Patti Wood of Grassroots Environmental Education.

Panelists include:
The Science: Dr. Robert Oswald, Cornell University; Dr. Perry Sheffield, Mount Sinai Hospital, NYC;
The Mothers Voices, Community Impacts: Pramilla Mallick, Protect Orange County New York; Theresa Dardar, tribal leader Point aux Chein Tribe, Louisiana Bayou; Michelle Bamberger, researcher on impacts on animal population and food safety
The Politics of Change: Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Biologist, author, activist and cancer survivor; Samara Swantson, Legislative Counsel to The Environmental Protection Committee of the New York City Council

This is a dynamic and unique opportunity to hear from mothers on the front lines, cutting edge scientists and innovative policy makers; making their voices heard. Learn how both their failures and their successes are shaping the present and will inform future policies that will create change.
