sources, such as fossil fuels, by touting exaggerated claims about alternative energy sources. One such post, for example, touted the progress made by Iowa in its efforts toward clean energy.
While Iowa does generate an increasing amount of energy from wind power, the post is false and an example of Russian efforts to mislead Americans regarding energy.
