During the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Annual Meeting, politicians from around the world will be discussing how to fight climate change. The agenda for the conference is full of pledges of “net-zero” and “clean energy.”

However, according to climate protesters in Davos, the WEF’s promises to fight climate change are not genuine. Many believe the WEF Annual Meeting is no more than a “corporate Disneyland.”

True North’s Andrew Lawton is in Davos, Switzerland to cover the international conference and caught up with some climate activists to discuss why they’re protesting the WEF.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
