  1. I think this is a big moment. "Democratic leaders on the U.S. House Oversight and Reform Committee sent letters Thursday inviting the heads of key fossil fuel companies and lobbying groups to testify before the panel about the industry's contributions to climate disinformation in recent decades. We are also concerned that to protect those profits, the industry has reportedly led a coordinated effort to spread disinformation to mislead the public and prevent crucial action to address climate change," the pair continued. They also expressed concern that such "strategies of obfuscation and distraction continue today," noting that "fossil fuel companies increasingly outsource lobbying to trade groups, obscuring their own roles in disinformation efforts." common dreams https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/09/16/dems-call-fossil-fuel-ceos-lobbyists-testify-about-climate-disinformation

  3. Liberal ,party, conservative party, on this at least, not a dimes worth of difference. not sure the ndp would be any better. Trudeau is all in on oil. early on, after becoming Prime minister, he actually got an award from the oil imdustry "The world leader who just this year talked about “phasing out the oil sands,” a massive petroleum exploration project in northern Alberta, will be receiving a major energy award in Houston Thursday night. At what’s known as CERAWeek, event organizers will be honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his self-proclaimed ability to balance an energy-driven economy with environmental messages. Trudeau is also slated to give the keynote address Thursday night and will be the first Canadian prime minister to do so. Trudeau has run afoul of some of his closest environmental supporters in Canada when he approved two major oil pipelines within the last six months — including the cross-border Keystone XL line." might as well have stephen harper, at least he was up front about it. the worlds leaders cower before the oil industry.
