exxon_750.jpg

On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing a new Guardian series, which examines how the fossil fuel industry contributed to the climate crisis and lied to the American public. We'll also discuss a video released by Greenpeace UK with Keith McCoy, one of ExxonMobil's top lobbyists. McCoy thought he was being headhunted. Instead, he was being covertly recorded.

Guest:

Mark Hertsgaard, executive director of Covering Climate Now, environment correspondent for The Nation, and the author of HOT: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth
