NEWS: Council screens climate documentary on Kent’s constituency office

This mornings action.

This morning’s action.

Kady O’Malley writes in her popular CBC blog, “The Council of Canadians will mark the final day of climate change negotiations in Durban by holding a public screening of Environment Minister Peter Kent’s 1983 documentary on global warming, which will be projected outside his Thornhill constituency office.”

In our media release noting this action, we highlight that in the 28 year old documentary Kent calls global warming “the greatest threat to life on the planet” and warns that the cataclysmic impacts of climate change “will be seen in our children’s lifetime.”

Toronto-based Council of Canadians organizer Mark Calzavara, who had the idea of doing this screening, says, “We want to remind him with his own words from 28 years ago about the consequences of protecting oil company profits instead of protecting the planet.”
