By all records fossil fuel burning has increased in spite of the quarter century long efforts of the United Nations conferences of parties, now in Glasgow with COP 26. That’s in part due to the power of Big Oil corporations - but also because of the promotion of - and subsidies to False Solutions.

One of the speakers on this program calls the Conferences of Parties literally a Festival of False Solutions. That includes: nuclear power, fracking and so-called natural gas, mega-dams and hydropower, hydrogen, bioenergy, waste incineration and land fill gas and more.

Most of these False Solutions have disproportionately affected indigenous and poor communities - but their sacrifices as well as their resistance have remained unknown or been ignored.

In preparation of COP26 the webinar Hoodwinked in the Hothouse was posted on the channel of the Indigenous Environmental Network. <>

The IEN was founded in 1990 within the United States. They are supporting Indigenous communities and Tribal Governments in the US and abroad in protecting sacred sites, land, water, and air. And they help care for the wellbeing of both the people and all living beings on indigenous lands.

On this excerpt from Hoodwinked we hear from Kandi. She is Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara from what is now North Dakota and a member of the Indigenous Environmental Network. She begins with a moving personal account of how her and her tribe’s lives were devastated by the arrival of fracking in the Bakken Oil Shale Formation. Then she talks about her international work against false climate solutions with the Indigenous Environmental Network, and her care for children and elders at home.

Gopal Dayaneni teaches in the Race and Resistance Studies at SF State. He gives the introduction to Hoodwinked in the Hothouse.

Hoodwinked in the Hothouse is also a free, multilingual publication that helps identify false solutions and how to resist.
My thanks go out to the Indigenous Environmental Network and the many organizations who participated in the webinar, the writing of the pamphlet and the events at the COP 26 in Glasgow.
