Big Oil and Big Coal companies aren’t going down without a fight: They make billions on dirty energy while the rest of us pay to clean up their mess. That’s why they’ve spent decades running well-funded campaigns to mislead and deceive the public about what’s really happening to the planet.
These polluters — and the special-interest groups they support — are even following the exact same playbook as the tobacco industry used to confuse the public about smoking and cancer.
But scientists aren’t confused about carbon pollution and climate change. And we shouldn’t be either. If Big Polluters are spreading lies and blocking our path to a clean-energy future, then it’s up to us to call them out and get them out of the way.
After all, our future is at stake – and we can’t leave it in the hands of a few powerful corporations.
