Journalist, former Vice President of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association
There’s a climate problem, all right. A climate of intolerance, where dissent is not permitted. Climate activists insist their point-of view is the only one that is acceptable, the only one that is respectable, and the only one that deserves to be heard.
Donna Laframboise is an investigative journalist based in Port Dover, Canada. She is the author of a book critiquing mainstream feminism, as well as two books about the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Described by Germany’s Der Spiegel as the IPCC’s “sharpest critic” and by a UK commentator as “blond, glamorous, highly-educated,” Donna has testified before a committee of the British House of Commons, and addressed audiences in Berlin, Brisbane, Calgary, Edinburgh, Erice (Sicily), London, Mannheim, Melbourne, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Perth, Sydney, Toronto, and Warsaw.
As a former vice president of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (1998-2001), Donna is committed not only to free speech but to what librarians call intellectual freedom. She believes journalists are duty-bound to inform the public about a variety of perspectives on current affairs. Ordinary citizens cannot evaluate the merits of competing narratives if journalists report only one point-of-view.
In early 2015, Donna was interviewed by India’s Sify News. That Q&A touches on many of her concerns regarding the dominant climate change narrative. Read it here.
Donna’s IPCC exposé, The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert has been translated into German and Norwegian. Into the Dustbin focuses on Rajendra Pachauri, who chaired the IPCC for 13 years prior to his 2015 resignation.
Donna Laframboise was the guest speaker at Friends of Science Society’s 9th Annual Event on Oct. 17, 2012. Donna had spoken around the world about her book “The Delinquent Teenager..”. You can see her presentation and powerpoint here.
