Is Misinformation About The Climate Criminally Negligent? asks Lawrence Torcello at The Conversation UK. GOOD QUESTION!! Clearly communicating science to the public should not be underestimated, since accurately understanding the message can be a matter of life or death. Those who actively mislead the public on climate change should be found criminally negligent, since many thousands have, and many millions could, die because of inaction on this issue. Misleading information discourages the action needed to prevent such deaths. Hope Earth Justice or someone else takes on this issue…

“Science is not there for you to cherry pick…You can decide whether or not to believe in it but that doesn’t change the reality of an emergent scientific truth.”

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
