You’re invited to join a Clean Energy Canada webinar on the rise of EV misinformation and how to tackle it. Clean Energy Canada’s communications director, Trevor Melanson, director of public affairs, Joanna Kyriazis, and manager of reports and outreach, Keri McNamara, will be joined by Globe and Mail car critic Matt Bubbers and Electric Mobility Canada’s Daniel Breton to discuss the myths and misinformation surrounding electric vehicles, what’s in store for the future, and how we might turn the tide of public perception. A recent study of climate-related YouTube videos found that climate denial is giving way to a new kind of climate delay tactic: the discrediting of climate solutions like EVs. This trend has had a helping hand from often well-intentioned but ultimately unbalanced reporting on electric vehicles, especially compared to gas cars. Join us as we explore the communications headwinds facing the shift to electric transportation—and how we can and must overcome them. The presentation will be followed by a discussion in which attendees can put their questions to panelists. Join us at 10am PT/1pm ET on March 12 as experts in the field offer informed insight and myth-busting information on EVs.
