Channel 4 will broadcast a green movement debate after it broadcasts the Darlow Smithson film What the Green Movement Got Wrong on November 4. The 75-minute documentary tells the story of life-long environmentalists that are challenging the movement they helped to create by embracing science and technology, and will be followed by a 45-minute live studio debate. Chaired by Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow, the presenters include environmentalist and author Stewart Brand; British environmentalist and author, Mark Lynas who believes the green lobby ‘cried wolf’ too often; African scientist Dr Florence Wambugu, who is a champion for genetically modified crops in order to stave off hunger and malnutrition, despite widespread opposition against them; Indian environmentalist Sunita Narain, who wants to bring electricity to 400 million people in India and lastly, Dr. Shantaram, a GM scientist and lobbyist. The debate will also be produced by Darlow Smithson.
