I have just downloaded The Debunking Handbook, because I am always keen to learn how to defend renewables from the lies of the coal, oil and gas lobby.
The Handbook is a short guide to the science of defending science from myth.
It was written by John Cook from the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland and Stephan Lewandowsky, in the School of Psychology at the University of Western Australia. They have an article on The Conversation today which summarises their work and takes you to a download of the Handbook.
The big polluters, their think tanks and the media echo chamber has shifted away from attacks on climate science to attacks on solar and wind. This renewables skepticism is the new front line in the war to save ourselves from runaway global warming.
