On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're speaking with Professor Michael Mann about his new book, The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet. Professor Mann explores how fossil fuel companies have waged a 30-year campaign to deflect blame and responsibility and derail attempts to take action on climate change.
He says the fossil fuel disinformation machine wants citizens to focus on individual choices such as the lifestyles we choose to live, rather than fight for systemic change. What will it take to move away from fossil fuels, hold governments and corporations accountable, and sustain the growing movement for climate justice?
