About the event:

Climate Museum founder and director Miranda Massie will lead a tour of the Museum’s current Soho exhibition, which explores how the fossil fuel industry, whose product is causing the climate crisis, manages to keep making a killing off of killing us—and what we can do about it. The show examines how the industry has exploited racist inequities and deceived the public to preserve its own power and profit off destruction. It is a story that encompasses the hard truths we must confront to arrive at a vibrant, earned belief in the better future we can make together. The show presents a blend of climate art, learning, and action opportunities.
