Each group reported on the major themes that characterized their discussion and points all could agree on.

A complete report on the forum results and participant questionnaire responses, including demographic data on the participants, is available on the Public Life Foundation’s website: www.plfo.org.

Responses from elected officials and energy-environmental policy makers will be published in the next edition.
