Fronting for industry -- The Wise Use Movement -- Lawsuits against public participation -- Conservative think-tanks -- Think-tanks and the environment -- The public relations industry -- Public relations strategies -- Scientific controversy : dioxin -- Advertisers : getting them young -- Advertisers : influence and strategies -- The media : corporate influences -- Reporting on the environment -- Declining democracy. Global Spin reveals the sophisticated techniques being used around the world by powerful conservative forces to try to change the way the public and politicians think about the environment. Large corporations are using their influence to reshape public opinion, to weaken gains made by environmentalists, and to turn politicians against increased environmental regulation. Global Spin shows how, in a relentless assault on democracy and its institutions, the massive, covert power of large corporations has enabled corporate agendas to dominate the international debate about the state of the environment and the most effective means of solving environmental problems.
