About the webinar and our speakers:

A clarion call for "net zero" greenhouse gas emissions has been embraced by nearly everyone — politicians, corporations, nations, even many environmentalists. But what does that really mean, and can "net zero" sufficiently address the climate crisis? Our panelists will discuss this and related issues around capitalism and false solutions, then we'll have an open Q&A and discussion of strategies to combat the disinformation around this greenwash.
