Five Myths in the Fight against Climate Change

3.5 ·

With so much misinformation about climate change about, New Internationalist co-editor Hazel Healy debunks 5 myths about the climate crisis that are doing the rounds. These myths are a dangerous distraction from the task at hand.

We know for sure is that we need to:

1. Rapidly phase out coal, gas and oil.

2. Cut energy consumption

3. Ramp up renewable energy at a speed and scale unprecedented in human history.

Nothing else will avert climate breakdown. Don’t let anyone persuade you otherwise.

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
