    Presenting: How to Save A Planet

    Presenting: How to Save A Planet

    The Republican Party has been almost uniformly opposed to climate action for years — nobody more so than President Donald Trump. But it wasn't always like this. Today we're sharing an episode of How to Save a Planet, entitled "Making Republicans Environmentalists Again". It looks back at how conservatives came to see the denial of climate science as a kind of badge of honor — and how two conservative activists are trying to change that.

Amazing Info on History and Present Big Oil

This is the perfect podcast to introduce to your family and friends!! How Big Oil followed the tactics of other big industries such as the Tobacco Industry, to create a 4 generation-deep web of propaganda and misinformation. 10/10!

A must for anyone concerned about climate change

30 years of deliberate deceit from fossil fuel top execs - condemning all of us to existential challenges ahead - this is a story that must be heard and widely shared. Kudos for excellent journalism!

Interesting

Interesting to learn more about the history behind the politics of climate change. The extend to which powerfull business went to cover it up. The sad part being that climate change is going to effect sooner and to greater extent those not at the top of these major business.
