Canada’s New Climate Denialism: Subtle, Deceitful, Dishonest

Canada has become the home of a new climate denialism, a more subtle, deceitful and dishonest version — Version 2.0.

The Artful Deception of Climate Consultation

I’m pleased to welcome Monica Woodley, an ordinary citizen (like millions of us), who has been inspired by her grandchildren to become a climate warrior. I spoke with Monica on the phone recently.
