How to Spot Misinformation by the Union of Concerned Scientists

Being able to identify misinformation is important to anyone wanting to create positive change in the world. We need to have an accurate view of our world in order to know what changes will bring more well-being, as well as which actions will be effective in creating change.

This is why number 3 of our Community Values is that our community is:

  1. Evidence Based
