Climate Propaganda: The Fossil Fuel Industry's Big Lie
What did the fossil fuel industry know about climate change and when did it know it?
Turns out, these giant corporations were aware of the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions for DECADES and instead of combatting the crisis they’ve engaged in obfuscation and manipulative marketing campaigns to sow confusion and mistrust of science.
At the same time, some of the most influential ad agencies on the planet—along with news organizations—have helped fossil fuel companies hone their image amid calls for increased action to reduce harmful emissions and fight the ever-worsening climate crisis!
This is the story of how a greed-obsessed industry mastered the art of manipulation to f*** the world—with help from some well-connected friends.
