My Zero Carbon

The best time to act is now!


My Zero Carbon has produced a video that can help you to have conversations with "climate sceptic" friends, family, colleagues or neighbours and/or help you to improve your own understanding of Climate Change issues.

This video presents 10 common Climate Change myths and debunks them with good science and factual information from reputable sources.


The myths addressed are

Myth #1 Only a few degrees of warming doesn’t matter.

Myth #2 Volcanoes emit more Carbon Dioxide than humans.

Myth #3 There is no scientific consensus on Climate Change.

Myth #4 Climate Change will happen to someone else, not me.

Myth #5 Governments will sort it out. I don't need to take any personal action.

Myth #6 Western Countries aren’t the problem. It’s China.

Myth #7  Carbon Dioxide is good, because it is plant food

Myth #8 Solar panels are expensive and cause more problems.

Myth #9 Your climate action isn’t good enough.

Myth #10 The world will come to an end by 2030 due to Global Warming
