Climate change is one of the most important environmental issues of our time. Climate change is caused by the increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

The head of Canada’s largest oil company says climate change is backed by science, and deniers, including politicians, need to do a U-turn and accept it.

Suncor Energy Inc. president and chief executive officer Steve Williams — speaking on a panel during the event in Calgary titled Bridging Divides: In Search of Sound Public Policies for Energy and Environment in Canada — said he’s unhappy with how the debate on climate change has become so polarizing.

“It is a matter of profound disappointment to me that science and economics have taken on some strange political ownership. Why the science of the left-wing is different than the science of the right-wing. Why it’s not possible for, certainly within Canada for conservatives, to take a conversation about, ‘Hey, it’s just a fact. Let’s get some facts out on the table,'” Williams told the crowd at the sold-out event.
