Hoodwinked in the Hothouse: Examining False Corporate Schemes advanced through the Paris Agreement

By Eriel Deranger, Jacqui Patterson, Moñeka De Oro, Tom Goldtooth, and Ananda Lee Tan - Tishman Environment Design Center, October 8, 2021

From Net Zero Emissions and Carbon Capture to Nature-based Solutions, a number of neoliberal policy agendas and unproven, corporate techno-fixes continue to subsidize the expansion of fossil fuel industries, while further impacting communities on the frontlines of climate chaos.

As we head into the UN Climate Conference’ COP 26, where the implementation of the Paris Agreement will be negotiated, climate justice advocacy groups and social movements are faced with overcoming a complex array of these false climate schemes, in order to force lawmakers towards a Just Transition framework for tackling this crisis.

Join an international panel of climate justice organizers and frontline community leaders in a discussion about the multi-billion dollar climate investments being promoted by fossil fuel industries and other disaster capitalists at various NY Climate Week venues over the next few days.

This panel builds on the momentum created by the most recent edition of HOODWINKED IN THE HOTHOUSE (THIRD EDITION): RESIST FALSE SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE, co-created through the contributions of the coalition of organizations that constitute the collective, listed below.
