Myths about myths: The Washington Post doesn't get it
This past weekend the Washington Post Outlook section published a piece of anti-renewable energy propaganda penned by a fossil fuel advocate. The piece purported to be just another in Outlook's 5 Myths series, designed to debunk conventional wisdom, but it appeared more to be an advertisement for Big Energy that got lost on the way to the reject pile.
Fortunately we can point you to a deft and surgical evisceration of the Outlook-sponsored Myths. It is written by Matt Wasson, who is an ecologist and the director of programs for Appalachian Voices. He notes that the author of the Outlook article, Robert Bryce, "deftly turns logic and common sense on its head to convince his readers that burning more fossil fuels is really the best path to a green energy future."
