Conversations That Matter

Just the Facts with Blair King

July 26, 2017

This week’s Conversation That Matters features Blair King an earth scientist who specializes in environmental remediation and speaks out on a range of resource based issues. He appreciates emotional appeals are extremely compelling and he understands why we all want to rally around a good story.

King, however, worries we’re making complicated policy and land use decisions based on emotion and sidelining the facts. That’s why he decided to speak up. Look for him on any social media platform where he freely shares his insights into a variety of issues that include energy transition, Kinder Morgan and Site C.  He has his fans and detractors.

Conversations That Matter is a partner program with the Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University. Join veteran Broadcaster Stuart McNish each week for these important and engaging Conversations shaping our future.
