hoodwinked coverStarting last summer, people from several organizations have been working to update a booklet on false solutions to climate change (I was involved with this effort for awhile and wrote the first draft of a couple of the sections). Now Hoodwinked in the Hothouse: Resisting False Solutions to Climate Change has been released as a PDF, available free. A print edition will be available later in May. You can read the whole thing through, or go directly to whichever elements most interest you.
