David Suzuki: Climate Change Deniers Are Almost Extinct -- But Is it Too Late?
Most North Americans know that human-caused global warming is real, even if political leaders don't always reflect or act on that knowledge.

Because there is a huge market demand for timely and quality health care that is not being met by the public system.
