Why do more than one-third of young adults believe that climate change is not man-made? In Miseducation, investigative reporter Katie Worth connects the dots between oil corporations, state legislatures, school boards, and textbook publishers, all of whom have learned from our country’s fights over evolution and tobacco, and are playing an active role in the miseducation of American children.

Timelier than ever, Miseducation is the alarming story of how climate denialism is being implanted in millions of school children.

Katie Worth will be in conversation with Bill Keller, former executive editor of The New York Times, and founding editor-in-chief of The Marshall Project.
