Description

Amy Goodman, Host, "Democracy Now!"
Kenneth Kimmell, President, Union of Concerned Scientists
Greg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate One

Amy Goodman has built a career on covering the movements that highlight solutions and catalyze change. She has explored how grassroots activism and general muckraking can give a voice to those otherwise ignored. Goodman does not shy away from difficult issues, and is not afraid to take on powerful industries when bringing a story to the public.
As the president of Union for Concerned Scientists (UCS), Kenneth Kimmell has the same tenacity of Goodman when it comes to getting to the bottom of things. Under Kimmell, UCS has led the charge in exposing the relationship between oil companies, climate change and climate denial. UCS research recently found that nearly two-thirds of total carbon emissions can be traced to 90 major industrial producers. That new science is fueling lawsuits launched by San Mateo and Marin counties against major fossil fuel companies alleging they are responsible for damages to coastal areas.

Join a conversation about going up against one of the most powerful industries in the world.
