Two Documentaries Airing This Sunday

Canadian readers, or those with satellite access, can watch a pair of global warming documentaries this Sunday June 3rd via the CBC.


Five Ways to Save the World runs at 10pm ET/PT on CBC Newsworld.

If global warming continues to escalate at the current rate, many fear the effects could be catastrophic. Five Ways to Save the World features five of the world's top scientists and the revolutionary scientific inventions they believe could stop global warming and prevent worldwide disaster. In Five Ways to Save the World, computer-generated imagery allows each scientist to fully describe his radical approach to a solution.

The Denial Machine follows at at 11pm on CBC-TV (note the channel change)

In the past few years, a hurricane has engulfed the debate about global warming. This crucial scientific issue has become a rhetorical firestorm with science pitted against spin and inflammatory words on both sides. Bob McKeown investigates why a debate that some say could determine the very future of our planet has become a partisan battleground. The Denial Machine follows a small but powerful group of scientists who argue, among other claims, that global warming may be a good thing and it investigates their links to the oil and coal industries. Film also available for viewing online.
