Climate myths

Nice of Bob Frank to "shatter" six myths that he claims are holding back action on climate change, but frankly (ha ha), they've been shattered countless times before. No amount of scientific consensus or reality checking is going to move the Republicans on this issue, so any progress at the national level will continue to consist of executive action, which of course is vulnerable to presidential elections and Supreme Court constraints. The best hope is that state and local governments, and idiosyncratic entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, continue to push the envelope on policy and technology solutions. Slim hope, to be sure.
