Why is meaningful action to avert the climate crisis proving so difficult? It is, at least in part, because of ads.

The fossil fuel industry has perpetrated a multi-decade, multibillion dollar disinformation, propaganda and lobbying campaign to delay climate action by confusing the public and policymakers about the climate crisis and its solutions. This has involved a remarkable array of advertisements – with headlines ranging from “Lies they tell our children” to “Oil pumps life” – seeking to convince the public that the climate crisis is not real, not human-made, not serious and not solvable.

Mysterious, Sudden Mass Die-Off in The US Could Be Killing Millions of Birds

It is terribly frightening, We've never seen anything like this. We're losing probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of migratory birds.

The phenomenon, which appears to have begun in late August, saw large numbers of dead animals discovered in White Sands, New Mexico, followed by similar occurrences in Do_a Ana County, Jemez Pueblo, Roswell, Socorro, and elsewhere. The death toll doesn't seem to be contained to New Mexico, however, with unusual carcass discoveries also reported in Arizona, Colorado, and Texas,
