The World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Annual Meeting official programme began today, and panellists immediately started talking about climate change and how governments can “transition away from fossil fuel.”

Panellists went as far as admitting that there would be “pain in the process” and the executive chairman of the WEF Klaus Schwab claimed that those in Davos can change the future.

True North’s Andrew Lawton reports from Davos.

    A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
