Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise. Former National Post & Toronto Star columnist, past vice president of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. New posts: Mondays & Wednesdays.
Donna Laframboise is an investigative journalist based in Port Dover, Canada. She is a former columnist, editorial board member, and feature writer for Canada’s National Post newspaper. Her work has appeared in venues as diverse as the Wall Street Journal and VancouverDesi.
Donna is the author of two books about the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Described by Germany’s Der Spiegel as the IPCC’s “sharpest critic,” she has testified before a committee of the British House of Commons, and addressed audiences in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, and Scotland.
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.
