The Petroleum Papers: Inside the Far-Right Conspiracy to Cover up Climate Change
/

Renowned climate writer and activist Bill McKibben calls this book, just out in September 2022, “a truly needed compendium of Big Oil’s endless lies.”

This interview delves into the story and how it was reported.

Investigative journalist, Geoff Dembicki exposes the truly nefarious plot by big oil to misinform the public about the dangers of climate change, even when their best scientists knew about it decades ago. Dembicki pored over a mountain of historical documents and interviewed key players to expose many times when the oil industry and its political allies sowed disinformation about the rising threat of climate catastrophe. He names names and connects dots from Fort McMurray to Washington, D.C. Dembicki concludes that we could have averted disaster decades ago and the very people pushing us to the precipice knew full well.
