What the oil companies knew about climate breakdown

This series revealed to me the extent to which Big Oil has acted like Big Tobacco in understanding the awful impact of climate breakdown but engaging in a massive misinformation campaign to slow down the impact of legislation in order to sustain their profitability.

Excellent

Brilliant analysis of media manipulation and the biggest issue mankind faces. Please Listen! These media techniques are being used everywhere.

Excellent and informed

I've listened to thousands of podcasts over the years and this is the one that got me the angriest. Not because it isn't brilliant (it is), but because the tale it tells of corporate greed, lies and "truth" make your realise that there is actually a climate change conspiracy, but it's not the one you think. Climate denial isn't a response to the "myth" of climate change but an actual orchestrated plan by the major oil companies to make us doubt the science and desperation of the environmental crisis in which we find ourselves. Well researched, sourced and argued this is essential listening.
