San Francisco is about to vote on whether gasoline pumps should display a ‘climate change disclosure label’.
Why is big oil allowed to sell their product without telling people it causes global warming? Can a consumer of fossil fuels see these climate change impacts? There is a campaign happening in the Bay Area and Canada that is asking these questions; and making history.
