Come to a screening of the satirically comedic Merchants of Doubt on Wednesday, May 25. Discussion afterward will include Ilonka Zlatar of 350 Sacramento. 6:30 pm @The Grange, 3830 U St. Free.
Merchants of Doubt takes audiences into the heart of conjuring American spin. Meet the secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves as scientific authorities, with the aim of spreading maximum confusion about public threats from tobacco to pharmaceuticals to climate change. Sponsored by Sierra Club Sacramento Group, Sacramento Community Grange, and Citizens Climate Lobby Sacramento Group.
Don't let them get away with it…
SB1161 holds fossil fuel companies accountable for climate deceit
For decades, fossil fuel companies deceived the American public about climate change so they could continue to rake in the profits. Now we are all suffering the effects.
SB 1161, the Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act, enables civil suits against companies that deny climate risk and misrepresent the facts of climate change to shareholders and the public.
Passage of this bill is essential. It could be voted on in the state Senate as early as Thursday.
WHAT YOU CAN DO: Make a phone call!
Call our State Senator Richard Pan (916-651-4006), who is unfortunately uncommitted and considered an important vote. Time is short! Here is a script to help end the era of climate science deception.
