James Hoggan on the climate cover-up

James Hoggan, author of Climate Cover-upJames Hoggan is the Chair of the David Suzuki Foundation and the Canadian chapter of Al Gore’s The Climate Project.  I’m in the middle of reading his book Climate Cover-up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming.  I frequently find myself referring to the DeSmogBlog.com website he oversees.  I’m looking forward to hearing him in person.

James will discuss how starting in the early 1990s, three large American industry groups set out to work on strategies to cast doubt on the science of climate change by drafting and promoting campaigns of climate change disinformation.  The success of those plans is self-evident.

Using four years of original research conducted through the DeSmogBlog.com website, Hoggan and his colleague Richard Littlemore exposes tactics in what has become a full blown attack on the integrity of the public conversation.  He also explains how mainstream media stood by while deniers turned a clear issue of science and public safety into a partisan argument.
