Scientists put careers on the line in climate wars

The lengths that scientists will go to highlight the danger of runaway climate change is the subject of a new short video by Vancouver-based icycle.ca productions ltd, being released today (24th April 2014).

The video is part of icycle.ca productions’ campaign to raise $10,000 to help complete the hour-long documentary Running On Climate.

The clip looks at the motivations for University of Victoria climatologist Dr Andrew Weaver’s successful run for provincial office in the riding of Oak Bay-Gordon Head.

The video also features Simon Fraser University Environmental Economist Dr Mark Jaccard, one of the more high profile scientists to state that he would resort to civil disobedience to prevent expansion of Canada’s carbon footprint.

Scientist and broadcaster Dr David Suzuki, a household name in Canada, also features.

The video and campaign, launched today (24th April 2013), can be viewed on Kickstarter .

The Running On Climate crowdfunding campaign continues until Saturday, May 24 2014 (9.42am).
