The Great Global Warming Showdown: Moment of Truth
The Risk of Being Wrong
After last week’s show, where do you now stand on the global warming debate? Do you believe what most scientists tell us – or do you think it’s all part of a grand conspiracy? And – would you be prepared to change your lifestyle if it meant saving the planet for future generations?
Last week we heard some shocking findings from a leading climate change researcher. This week, we consider the sceptic’s arguments. Donna Laframboise is a Canadian journalist and writer, whose latest book is Into the Dustbin: Rajendra Pachauri, the Climate Report & the Nobel Peace Prize. Also on the show is British journalist and writer on economic & social development issues John Madeley, whose latest book Let Live: A Bike Ride, Climate Change And The CIA is a novel about climate change, dealing with the impact on the lives of the people affected by it.
Add our regular host Ian Winn, the ever-sensible Ali Gardiner and not forgetting producer Peter Cox… and you’ve got the ingredients for a highly combustible conflagration. What you might call a heated argument? Listen for yourself, and decide.
