Media Roundtable: The US and its fossil fuel allies at COP24 & the 'Yellow Vest' protests in France
On this week's media roundtable, we’ll discuss the recent social unrest in Paris. Protests over planned gas tax hikes snowballed into a wider revolt over the high cost of living, inequality, and French President Emmanuel Macron’s neoliberal policies.
We’ll also discuss coverage of the climate summit in Poland and the environmental impacts of the Trump administration’s massive expansion of oil, natural gas, and coal production.
