Canadian Points of View: Climate Change;6/30/2019, p3
The article presents an argument against the threat of climate change. It is the author's opinion that the portrayal of climate change as an environmental disaster caused by humans is a hoax. The percentage of carbon dioxide gas in the earth's atmosphere is examined. Media use of scientific data concerning climate change is explored. Warming trends on other planets in the solar system are also discussed.
