The Cap and Trade Scam: What the Hell Just Happened? Where Do We Go From Here? (Oakland)

  • California Nurses Association 155 Grand Avenue Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

A public forum will take a close, critical look at AB 398, the controversial extension of California’s carbon pollution trading program, a bill that faithfully mirrored the oil industry’s wish list, and is now being touted as as a shining example ofbipartisanship and enlightened climate policy.  Oil industry experts and activists in the climate and environmental justice movements will explain what cap and trade has (not) accomplished, what the new law will do, and how it passed so quickly.  And we’ll talk about future strategies for stopping the fossil fuel industry from poisoning communities, increasing climate catastrophe, and corrupting our politics.  Co-presented by the Sunflower Alliance and 350 Bay Area.
