This is one of my more satisfying moments since I started this site. Growing up in the 70s, I was subjected to CBC blasting anti-Western commie propaganda at me in the form of the very familiar crypto-environmentalism we are all so used to. The faces were the same. It was primarily David Suzuki warning us all that Western industry was going to bring the temple down with its pollution and other sins against the environment. But the predictions were notably different.
Back then, Suzuki and all the other disingenuous men-of-destiny who were trying to pave the way for policies that would collapse Western free market nations, were claiming that pollution from industry would blot out the sun and bring on a new ice age that would cause mass death and starvation. A plot later adapted by the Simpsons.
The thing is, its very difficult to find a single clip of Fruit Fly Geneticist, David Suzuki talking about “Nuclear Winter”, (the process where industry would mimic the effects of a global nuclear war and kick up so much dirt into the atmosphere the sun is dimmed so much it brings on an artificial ice age) since he metamorphosed into speaking about how the exact same cause, Western industry, would cause “global Warming”.
I even asked someone I know at Parliament to check the library there for CBC clips of Suzuki talking on nuclear winter, and now and again I do the search with zero results. Its harder even than finding the clip of Patrick Swayze mocking Latin American culture on Saturday night Live, singing, “One Ton of Fanmail” along with Dana Carvey. That clip was removed from the DVD set but can be found online now. But not David Suzuki’s decades long propaganda on nuclear winter.
So it is with great satisfaction that we can present the next best thing.

In this clip, Nimoy does not state that this coming iceage will be due to Mankind’s industry. David Suzuki really did. And very often. The truth of the matter from a scientific perspective is best explained by the documentary, The Cloud Mystery. If one accepts that a model is as good as its predictive value, which is a decent way to qualify science, then this model is the best we have.
If anyone happens to be in possession of one of those clips of David Suzuki and nuclear winter, please leave a link to it or a breadcrumb as to where one might find it in the comments.
Thank you Dan K.
