Tuesday Energy Post: HuffPo’s Matt Wasson delivers smackdown to misleading WaPo oped

Specifically, he takes on the first of oil shill Robert Bryce’s “Five myths about green energy”.

It would make for an exceedingly long and boring post to debunk every piece of misinformation in his 1,000 word piece, so for now I’ll just focus on Bryce’s “Myth 1: Solar and wind power are the greenest of them all.”

Wasson does a fantastic job of eviscerating Bryce’s distortions about the impact of wind power on Denmark’s CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, as I read it I was reminded of the old adage that a lie is halfway around the world before the truth has its pants on. Especially if The Washington Post gives the lie a Jumbo Jet.
