Right wing media diverting attention from climate change

For the last week, the David Suzuki Foundation has been under vicious attack from right wing media including the National Post, Fox News, and prominent climate change deniers. This small but aggressive group is denouncing our "Where Will Santa Live" holiday fundraising campaign as fear mongering.

They want to distract Canadians from the truth: climate change threatens our future and Canada is doing nothing to contribute to solutions.

We are reaching out to our friends. We need your help. Please make an online donation to support our work on climate change. Every donation to the David Suzuki Foundation helps strengthen our ability to speak out for the millions of Canadians who want action.

The government of Canada has made it clear that it has no intention of respecting the Kyoto Protocol, the only legally binding international agreement with firm targets to reduce global warming pollution. To make matters worse, Canadian officials have been accused of bullying other countries into abandoning Kyoto as well. This is a national embarrassment. Even China, the world's largest producer of emissions, has indicated that it will commit to cutting greenhouse gases in the coming years.

With your help, the David Suzuki Foundation can be a prominent voice of reason, taking those who exploit the environment to task. No matter what the climate deniers say or how nasty their attacks, we will continue our work. But we need your support. Please give today so that we can continue to hold political leaders accountable to Canada's climate change responsibilities.

Climate change is real. The Arctic ice that cools the world is melting. And right wing media outlets and pundits want everyone to forget this. We need friends like you now more than ever. Please give today and help us fight for climate solutions.

Sincere thanks,

Peter Robinson
CEO
The David Suzuki Foundation

I would simply like to say that I LOVE your "Where Will Santa Live" campaign. Congratulations on creating an original way to raise funds for your foundation. My favorite part is the reindeer with floaters : )

And its about time. Suzuki has been able to bad mouth just about any organization which happens to disagree with him for years now and he has always gotten away with it. Its about time someone gave him a bit of his own medicine for once.
