Canada's Climate Minister: "From ‘Green Jesus’ To ‘Radical Pragmatist’

"When top environmental ministers from the Group of Seven industrial countries met in Berlin in May, Steven Guilbeault was among them.

But for the first time in his long career, he was meeting with the ministers inside the summit, rather than protesting in the streets outside.

“Someone asked me, ‘Is it your first G-7 meeting?’” Guilbeault recalled in an interview with The Climate 202. “I said: 'Well, it depends how you look at it. I've protested a number of them, but it's my first one inside. So it's an adjustment for sure.'”"
