Climate change science is not confirmed, says speaker

Posted by Phil Andrews

We’ll no doubt be criticized for covering this upcoming speech at the University of Guelph. We’d be criticized for not covering it too.

U of G’s Department of Food Agriculture and Resource Economics is hosting Larry Solomon for an Oct. 20 address on ‘GLOBAL WARMING: THE SCIENCE IS NOT SETTLED.’

It goes at 2:30 – 3:30 pm, at Room 124, in the Richards Building.

Here’s the Solomon bio provided on posters promoting the event:

Lawrence Solomon is one of Canada’s leading environmentalists. His book, The

Conserver Solution (Doubleday), which popularized the Conserver Society

concept in the late 1970s, became the manual for those interested in incorporating

environmental factors into economic life. An advisor to President Carter’s Task

Force on Global Resources and Environment (the Global 2000 Report) in the late

1970’s, he has since been at the forefront of movements to reform foreign aid,

stop nuclear power expansion, save the world’s rainforests and convert free roads

to toll roads. He is a columnist with National Post, a former columnist for the

Globe and Mail, and author of seven books, including Energy Shock

(Doubleday), Toronto Sprawls (University of Toronto Press) and, most recently,

The Deniers (Richard Vigilante Books).
