David Suzuki made the comment Thursday while participating in a University of Guelph President’s Dialogues panel discussion. The title of the session was: Climate Change: debate, dilemma, death?

“It’s absolutely absurd to make money about saving lives. Crazy,” Suzuki said, in response to comments from other panellists.

Green energy entrepreneur and inventor Sherolyn Vettese and former Yale professor and Zerofootprint founder and chief executive officer Ron Dembo both just expressed that there was a role for the economy and business to play in saving the planet.
