Topic: Solar Power

Barack Obama
Every three weeks, we bring online as much solar power as we did in all of 2008.
This statement from the State of the Union Address is true. Not only that but Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. noted that, “There are already more American jobs in the solar industry than in coal mining.”
Rick Perry
Perry says "the U.S., Canada, and Mexico have more energy resources than Russia and Saudi Arabia."
North America does have a large supply of petroleum, natural gas and coal. But combining the three fuel sources together is like comparing fossil fuel-based apples and oranges. Just comparing straight numbers, Perry was right about coal, but wrong on natural gas and crude oil.
Don Zimmerman
Texas politician slams science on global warming saying that it is "the sun warms the Earth, carbon dioxide does not"
It is true the sun is our primary source of energy and drives the climate. However Zimmerman and global warming deniers discount the fact that the Earth's atmosphere filters the sun. High concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere cause temperatures to rise because the solar energy that the Earth absorbs cannot escape to space as efficiently.
Rick Santorum
Santorum says that IPCC climate change study says that 57% of scientists don't agree that "CO2 is the knob that’s turning the climate."
The IPCC actually said it is "extremely likely" (meaning a 95 percent confidence level) that humans are causing climate change; and it is "very likely" (meaning a 90 percent confidence level) that greenhouses gases are the driver. And scientists overwhelmingly agree.
Global Warming
Soon to be released movie, "This Changes Everything," explores the battle between Capitalism and the climate.
The documentary, based on Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller, was filmed in nine countries and five continents over four years. It is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.  What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?
