The last half hour of today’s CBC Radio current affairs show The Current discussed “climate coverup” . Their first guest was James Hoggan, author of Climate Cover-up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming. Mr. Hoggan is president of the PR firm James Hoggan and Associates as well as being the chair of the David Suzuki Foundation. He was followed by University of Toronto computer network manager Jim Prall who keeps tabs on climate skeptics and climate scientists. The final guest was Lawrence Solomon, a climate change skeptic and author of The Deniers: The World Renowned Scientists who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud – and those who are too fearful to do so.

One of the interesting “facts’ that Mr. Solomon asserts is that oil companies are funding environmental groups that push the whole “false” climate change theory. Now that’s an new one!
Tonight on CBC Radio’s evening news show, As It Happens, c0host Carol Off will be looking into a national radio ad campaign mocking the whole idea of climate change. If you miss it, check back because I’m hoping to post the link to it.
