TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikin asks: Is the debate on climate change over
or just beginning?

- Special series on climate change runs Tuesday to Friday March 9 to 12 at 8pm on TVO

TORONTO, March 5 /CNW/ - Is the science of climate change still in doubt? Many scientists and agencies say that the debate should turn from if man-made global warming is happening to what should be done about it. Skeptics say the "climate-gate" scandal last autumn in which emails unearthed by a hacker revealed that some scientists associated with the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change may have been exaggerating their findings is proof that nothing has been settled yet.

TVO's current affairs flagship program The Agenda with Steve Paikin raises the temperature on the debate with a four-part series Tuesday March 9 to Friday March 12 at 8 pm on TVO, and repeated at 11 pm the same night, and 5 am the following morning.

What is the argument for man-made climate change and where is more study needed? In a battle between science and politics, who wins? And what if anything can be done about climate change? Anchor and senior editor Steve Paikin welcomes a diverse panel of experts to discuss where the climate change debate stands.
