Webinar: False Climate Solutions: Don’t Believe the Hype
When: Tuesday, February 23, 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. ET
Where: Online! Once you RSVP, we'll send you the link to join.
Hear from policy experts about the false climate solutions being used to undermine serious climate action – and what we can do to change that. We'll cover pay-to-pollute schemes like cap-and-trade and carbon pricing, unproven carbon capture technology, and dirty "renewable" factory farm biogas.
Meet the experts:

She has a PhD from the University of Tennessee, Department of Sociology. She mainly works on environmental and climate justice, social movements, and extractive industry research, as well as carbon pricing, forests, and land policies related to development policies. Tamra is also a lecturer at the University of Tennessee.

Jim Walsh currently serves as the Senior Energy Policy Analyst for Food & Water Watch, working with state and national organizations to educate decision makers on policies that help facilitate a rapid and just transition off fossil fuels.
We'll be using a web conferencing platform called Zoom so you can see faces — we recommend that you join from a computer if you can.
