VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2009) - James Hoggan, co-founder of DeSmogBlog.com and the author of "CLIMATE COVER- UP: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming" will be unveiling his book in Atlanta and available for interviews in advance of the event.
CLIMATE COVER-UP is about the perversion of science by public relations. It is a seething reportage of public manipulation, staggering deceit and manufactured controversy.
James Hoggan is a public relations expert who can clearly explain how the old energy industry has executed a two-decade long PR campaign to confuse the public about climate change, in the process undermining clean energy, green jobs and America's best chance at achieving energy independence. Mustering insights from his own 30-year career, Hoggan can describe strategies and highlight tactics, including the staging of phony protests; the manufacturing of stories with false experts; the forging of petitions; and, on too many occasions, outright lying.
As the U.S. prepares to join the Copenhagen climate summit in December, the question remains, will Americans join the global fight against global warming, or will we fall victim to a campaign of climate confusion that serves only the interests of fossil fuel firms and sunset industries eager to hide from change?
WHAT: An informative dialogue and book reading at PARKGROUNDS
142 Flat Shoals Ave SE
WHO: James Hoggan - Author of Climate Cover-Up
Co-founder of DeSmogBlog.com and president of the award-winning public relations firm James Hoggan & Associates, Hoggan is also chair of the David Suzuki Foundation and a trustee of the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education.
WHEN: Thursday, October 29, 2009 Atlanta 7 – 9 PM
"I never doubted that we humans are up to the technical challenge of beating climate change. But I worry that we will not be able to rise to the political and economic challenges in time. This book explains how the propaganda generated by self interest groups has purposely created confusion about climate change. It's an imperative read for a successful future."
