Climate Disinformation and How We Can Counter It
Oct 19, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Interfaith Power and Light
Join us Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 pm for a meeting as part of PA IPL‘s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).
In our next joint session with JEA, we will learn how misleading information on global warming can usually be traced directly to special interests. The energy business is one of the largest industries in the world. Major fossil fuel companies routinely make billion-dollar profits, extracting and distributing oil, gas, and coal. Unfortunately, fossil fuels produce carbon dioxide (CO2) when burnt—and CO2 is the main driver of climate change. Instead of acknowledging the harmful effects of their products and committing to swift and deep reductions in global warming emissions, many of the world’s largest fossil fuel companies have knowingly deceived the public about the climate science and policy—and they continue to do so today. There will be time for discussion.
