David Suzuki recently went to Australia, and ran into a public televised situation where scientifically informed laymen asked him some tough questions ...

It's too bad Ezra has to get in the way so much. Suzuki's performance is being passed all over the blogosphere, often to great horse-laughs, or looks of stunned amazement. It would be nice to see more of it.

This is the over-inflated windbag that the CBC has foisted on us for decades after he had any relevance. During that time, he used his prestige to confuse and politicize environmental issue(s). He has been a negative for decades. (My opinion, mind you.) He has held up an honest debate, and gone on to deny what is obvious -- if this last summer is any judge, global warming seems to be receding.

And it turns out Suzuki doesn't even know the basic data collecting organizations monitoring world temperatures! He probably quit reading technical science when he became a CBC host.

Folks like Suzuki have turned Climate Change into a cult.
Which is largely why no one seems to care anymore.

If you buy into it, or you don't the reality is that efficiency helps everyone and reduced waste and that is something I think business and government could have got behind.

The problem is that screaming that its never enough results in nothing ever getting done.

Kyoto was in 1997 and for the next nine years no one in government could placate the masses of "Greenies" and as such nothing got done and we withdrew. They didn't get a single thing they wanted even though most of what they wanted was there for the taking.

Just like all the Nuclear protestors of the 1970's resulted in hundreds of Coal Power Plants being built across the US and producing millions upon millions of tons of carbon in the air, we find ourselves in a position once again that the zealots are doing more harm than good.

Implying that a democratically elected leader should be jailed because he scrapped the carbon tax which he campaigned on is just such utter noise.

I have to question how long CBC can continue to employ Suzuki, if one of their commentators took such a hardline stance on something like Abortion for the sake of argument, how long would it take before they were shown the door.

Zealotry either left or right rarely results in anything getting done, and Mr. Suzuki is rapidly reaching a level where his noise is harming his cause.

It's a lot worse than that.

This is a video of the program where he made such an ass of himself. Levant only touched the surface. Suzuki shows himself out of his depth, when asked questions from scientifically informed members of the public.

He reveals himself from the start. See him start to foam at about the 27 minute mark. He veers from modestly admitting ignorance through to touching on paranoid lunacy. There's an interesting discussion of genetically modified foods. (See about the 40 minute mark.)

When Greenpeaces founding members says you are hurting the cause, you may be hurting the cause.

Quote:
One of the founding members of Greenpeace says environmental guru David Suzuki has become so extreme he's actually hurting his own cause.

Patrick Moore sat down with Sun News Network's Ezra Levant for an hour to talk about the evolution or devolution of the environmental movement and why he finds both Greenpeace and Suzuki's messaging not just reckless, but counterproductive to their own cause.

Let me add some more material from the same article you cite. This is Patrick Moore speaking:

Quote:
... "Greenpeace began with a very strong humanitarian element," Moore explained. "Basically, Greenpeace and much of the environmental movement went from caring about people to believing that humans were the enemy of the Earth."

Moore illustrated his point by highlighting the debate over golden rice a genetically modified crop enhanced with beta carotene, designed to address the vitamin A deficiencies in children in the developing world.

Its creators hail it as a solution to world hunger. Its detractors including Greenpeace call it a Pandora's box of unknown consequences.

It's the extreme environmentalist's belief that humans are a cancer of the planet that allows them "to ignore millions of kids dying of vitamin A deficiency," Moore said.


The emphasis (bolding) has been added.
