Norway's oil and gas giant Equinor is selling the world a dirty lie about clean carbon.

Writer Henrik Mathiesen explains how Norway's state-owned oil and gas company Equinor masks its legacy of global environmental destruction through savvy public relations - dominating the country's discourse around energy and the environment, and ignoring the stark reality of its role producing global warming and the only real green choice we have - to leave fossil fuels in the ground.
