THE DEBRIEF: Peter Kent and Peter Kent on Climate Change
December 14, 2011
submit to reddit

With Canada pulling out of Kyoto, who do you turn to for information about the possible effects of climate change on the Earth? How about Peter Kent, the current Environment Minister... Circa 1984.

It turns out the '80s version of Peter takes the Greenhouse effect very seriously.

Meanwhile, the present-day Peter Kent is facing some rude language in the House of Commons today - Justin Trudeau got into a heated argument with Mr. Kent over the Kyoto Protocol, and apparently yelled "you are a piece of shit" at the Environment Minister. This is not the first time the two men have traded words in the House.

Plus, a little bit of Bieber talking to Dads, and potentially offending Gandhi.
