Earthworks will host a worldwide premiere of Uncovering the Permian Climate Bomb, an award-winning short documentary directed by Sharon Wilson and Miguel Escoto about a 22-year-old activist coming face to face with what is now the world’s largest sources of climate pollution: the Texas Permian Basin. The screening will be held online and will be followed by a Q&A and panel discussion.

“Experts agree the world needed to end all new investment in oil and gas by 2021 to protect billions of people from the immediate risks of climate change. But in the Permian Basin, oil and gas companies are planning more production than ever before,” said Miguel Escoto, co-director and Texas lead organizer at Earthworks. “Unless we unite and force our governments to take action, the fossil fuel industry will continue to make this planet unsuitable for living. The climate cannot be saved without stopping the Permian Climate Bomb.”
