Big Oil's long-running climate disinformation campaign


On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we discuss the fossil fuels industry’s long running disinformation campaign and delay tactics. As the climate crisis wreaks havoc around the world, oil companies are making the case that climate denialism is protected speech.

We'll also discuss major media coverage of the recent heatwave, the coral reef crisis in Florida, lawsuits against Big Oil, and Project 2025, a plan to dismantle US climate policies for next Republican president.
