This panel was preceded by Hoodwinked in the Hothouse I: Examining False Corporate Schemes being advanced through the Paris Agreement and by Hoodwinked in the Hothouse Part II: Frontline Voices of Indigenous Resistance beyond Climate False Solutions. The recordings of these events are available here and here.
With federal and state governments poised to provide billions in climate subsidies, policy incentives and tax breaks to dangerous and dirty energy industries such as biomass and waste incinerators; nuclear power, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure for fossil-fuel facilities, frontline and environmental justice communities are facing increased pollution burdens and toxic threats.
This webinar will highlight emergent threats of climate false solutions across U.S. federal and state policy landscapes, featuring organizers, community leaders, researchers, and frontline organizations who are fighting the myths associated with CCS, nuclear, hydrogen, biofuels and waste incineration. Along with debunking false solutions, this webinar will highlight inspiring stories of success led by environmental justice communities.
To effectively move money away from such dangerous policy directions and towards real climate justice solutions, coalition building is needed amongst national green groups, labor unions, climate philanthropy, and policymakers to join frontline communities in opposing these schemes.
The following Hoodwinked co-authors and experts will provide deeper analysis of, and strategies for circumventing these deadly threats that are emerging from the beltway and various state capitals in 2022:

The event will be moderated and facilitated by Professors Ana Baptista and Leonardo E. Figueroa Helland of The New School, the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management Program, and the Tishman Environment & Design Center
