Ilias gave an introduction prior to the screening and invited questions and comments afterwards. Only two members of the audience responded. I (Wayne Hall) drew attention to the record of Judith Curry, her resignation from her academic post and critique of the climate change establishment, her view that the climate "debate" has become intolerably politicized, her judgement that Trump is not likely to do too much damage and also that his presidency may (objectively) facilitate change of the kind that Judith Curry would like to see. The other intervention was from Dimitris Skarpalezos,who argued that the climate debate was not too politicized but in fact not politicized enough.
Perhaps Ecoweek has the potential to host some of the kind of dialogue that Judith Curry (and others) say they would like to see. Would the "others" include Al Gore? That is perhaps a question for Ecoweek to address.
Someone at the DiEM25 unofficial facebook group made this comment: "McKibben is basically pushing "Global Warming" in order to seduce investors long after the smart money has left the market: Carbon trading was stopped on the Chicago Exchange in 2013. Al Gore and M. Strong were involved in setting that up. Gore made $100 million selling carbon certificates and Strong died in China as a fugitive from justice for taking about a million USD of UN money."
