In the middle section of the show, the hosts do a revisit of the supposed ‘controversy’ of Canadian eco-groups ‘selling out’ to join forces with big oil. This story isn’t what it seems, and we corrected a few pieces of info from last week. However, there is still some parts to be unhappy about… just not the things that people seem to be upset about. We break it down piece by piece on this weeks show.
If you are interested in this story we urge you to read ALL FOUR of these links, as they all have very different perspectives and as usual… the truth is somewhere in the middle.
Open Letter by Tzeporah Berman on the ‘controversy’:

Here’s some interesting things to note about Canada’s involvement this time around:
Edward asks Daryn and Stefan to give the most ‘Cole’s Notes’ version of climate change, and we both do our best and also explain why that’s a bad idea most of the time.
We also briefly discuss the Greenpeace ‘sting’ operation on USA Academics with regards to climate denial.
