About the event
A student of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Paredi received his engineering degree from UC Berkeley and spent much of his career among the oil derricks of Venezuela. He traveled the world on behalf of his employer, EXXON-Mobil, but then became an outspoken activist and author, studying lobbying and policy priorities of the oil and gas industries. He’ll discuss the present and future of oil drilling in the Gulf: what’s been learned, what’s been done, and what still needs to be done to prevent another devastating accident like Deepwater Horizon from ever happening again.
