For decades API and its members have used its endless resources to mislead the public into thinking they are supportive of climate policies, when in reality they are the main driver of the climate crisis and obstacle to building a nation powered by clean energy. The webinar will dive into how API and its members spend tens of millions of dollars to spread disinformation through public relations firms, trade organizations, dark money groups, fake grassroots groups, and advertising.
