This is interesting:
Back in 1984, Peter Kent presented a ground-breaking documentary, â€˜The Greenhouse Effectâ€™, on CBCâ€™s The Journal. Kent explained the dire threat posed by global warming and noted that the â€œscientific community [was] virtually unanimousâ€ on the seriousness of the problem.
Early this year, Peter Kent was appointed as Canadaâ€™s environment minister and promptly began peddaling the talking points of climate change deniers about Albertaâ€™s tar sands being â€œethical oilâ€.
The documentary opens with some interesting claims. It takes seriously the possibility that climate change could be dangerous, but then baldly asserts that “we can’t stop it”.
Thankfully, we can. We just need to replace fossil fuels with better energy alternatives.
