It's becoming harder and harder to deny that the Earth is warming. But climate change skeptics not only have a plan for how to keep the public arguing about the validity of the science, they also have the ear of the most powerful person on the planet. Reporter Amanda Aronczyk goes inside the Trump International Hotel in Washington to attend one of the largest gatherings of climate deniers in the country and discovers that their strategy could work.

This is the story of the origin and future of climate change skepticism.

Hosted by Kai Wright. Reported by Amanda Aronczyk. Edited by Christopher Werth.
