Reminder: Attenborough's "Can We Save Planet Earth?" on CBC Tonight

Here's a reminder that CBC's The Big Picture features part two of Sir David Attenborough's documentary Can We Save Planet Earth tonight. The show will present potential solutions to global warming, followed by a panel discussion about the road ahead. Acknowledging the scientific consensus on the issue, the debate will steer clear of the pointless "skeptics vs. alarmist" angle and focus on what we can do as individuals, a nation and a species to avert the impacts of climate change.

Attenborough's film lays out seven components of a sane response to global warming - strategies and targets from the household to big industries and government. But each one has implications, and many - like a growing reliance on nuclear power - are highly contentious. Our goal is to debate these strategies in a positive and constructive spirit: combating the paralysis of swirling fears with concrete ideas for informed action."

SPECIAL GUESTS:
Bob Mills, Alberta Tory MP, Chair of the Standing Committee on the Environment and Sustainable Development
Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party
Terry Glavin, Author, Waiting for the Macaws
Mark Nantais, President, Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association
Glen Murray, Chair, National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy

Showtime is Wednesday September 27 at 10pm ET/PT on CBC.
