On July 17, 2008, Al Gore challenged America to commit to producing 100% of our energy from renewable, clean and carbon-free sources in 10 years. This meeting will address what this challenge means for New York City. We need to break the mold and push our thinking toward a greater sense of urgency, based on current scientific understanding of impending climate change. As "First City" to the world, New York City can show how to leap ahead in dealing with renewable energy production and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
