The word is they’ve given up on climate change denial and are now moving to promote false solutions to protect their bottom line. These false solutions are a distraction intended to derail efforts to keep fossil fuels in the ground. Big Ag is trying to get in on the action too.

So they’re promoting things like elaborate pay-to-pollute schemes like cap-and-trade and carbon pricing, as well as unproven technology like carbon capture. “Renewable” biogas would prop up the unsustainable factory farm system without reducing methane emissions.

Learn how these schemes work, how they fall short of the urgent climate action we need, how thy disproportionately impact low income and environmental justice communities — and what we can do to counter this campaign.

Panel:

  • Dr. Tamra Gilbertson, the carbon pricing education coordinator and climate change policy advisor of the Indigenous Environmental Network
  • June Sekera, a Visiting Scholar at The New School for Social Research and public policy manager with over 30 years of experience at the federal, state and local levels of government
  • Jim Walsh, the Senior Energy Policy Analyst for Food & Water Watch, working with state and national organizations to educate decision makers on policies that help facilitate a rapid and just transition off fossil fuels

We have to understand these dirty tricks so we can explain them — and prevent them from being used to stop what we really need to do: Keep It In the Ground!
