It’s been 15 years since Hurricane Katrina left its mark on New Orleans, and news outlets are still failing to discuss the links between fossil fuel pollution, climate change, and extreme weather.
Watch this video connecting the dots between hurricanes, climate change, and fossil fuels (on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter). Then add your name to the petition if you believe it is time for the media to tell the whole story.
