Our friends over at Skeptical Science typically just tackle the issue of climate science, and spend their time tirelessly debunking global warming or climate change denier myths. As I think you all know, there are a lot of climate science myths out there.
However, as clean energy grows and threatens the existence of dirty energy industries (which is where a lot of those climate science myths originate), more and more of that negative spin is directed at clean energy sources rather than just global warming and climate change. And, the bottom line is, we need to shut down dirty energy and light up clean energy in order to tackle our climate crisis. Thus, Skeptical Science has been discussing these important solutions to the greatest threats facing human civilization more and more. Here’s a great post from Dana on “How to Solve the Climate Problem,” with a brief summary of some of the key actions needed to encourage clean energy and curtail dirty energy production:
