Tune in to the concluding installment of “The Power of Big Oil,” the gripping three-part docuseries by FRONTLINE, as we delve into the critical juncture of the present moment in the fight against climate change.

In the first two episodes, we uncovered the fossil fuel industry’s extensive efforts throughout the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s to sow doubt and delay action on climate change, despite mounting scientific evidence.

Now, in “Delay,” the final chapter of the series, we explore how, amid growing warnings about the climate crisis, the United States has emerged as a major player in oil and gas production. Discover how the fossil fuel industry has worked tirelessly to hinder the transition to renewable energy, promoting natural gas as a purportedly cleaner alternative. Yet, as the nation entered a gas boom, revelations emerge from a former Exxon Mobil engineer regarding the industry’s negligence in monitoring methane leaks, exacerbating the climate emergency.

As we draw the Big Oil series to a close, “Delay” delves into the climate policies of the Obama, Trump, and Biden administrations, examining their implications for the future. Join us as we assess the stakes and consider the path forward in confronting one of the greatest challenges of our time.
