Environmental Distractions and False Solutions

Among the false solutions are natural gas, "clean" coal, nuclear, geo-engineering, hydrogen, and "carbon capture" or pulling carbon dioxide out of the air. All are designed to allow fossil fuel companies to keep polluting with the false expectation that a mythical mystery solution will save us all so we don't have to take any action now.

Perhaps the best book about the environment is The New Climate War by Dr. Michael Mann because it includes information about distractions, misinformation campaigns, and false solutions.
