Earth Day is coming up, and join us as we commemorate it with our next reading discussion.
In 2007, the Union of Concerned Scientists published a report detailing how ExxonMobil copied tactics from cigarette companies to manufacture uncertainty about global warming/climate change. Now, over a decade later, the same techniques are being used again to push for deregulations on air quality.

The study (and its Executive Summary) can be found here:
