Wade's most recent documentary, Mondays at Racine , about a salon that caters to women with cancer, won 3 festival awards this summer and will be broadcast on HBO later this year. Other projects have included Shelter Dogs , about the animal welfare system and the ethics of euthanasia (winner of 5 awards and broadcast in 7 countries); Born Sweet , about a Cambodian village poisoned by arsenic-laced well water (which received an Honorable Mention at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and 15 other festival awards); and Living the Legacy: The Untold Story of Milton Hershey School , which aired on IFC and Sundance Channel. Prior to her directing career, she was a cameraperson for PBS, HBO/Cinemax, Bravo, AMC, MTV, A&E, Discovery, TNT, Oxygen, LOGO, and The History Channel. Before her work in film, she worked full time for 6 years in homeless shelters in New York City. She currently lives with her husband and 2 daughters in western Massachusetts, where she operates her production company from 2 renovated barns.
In the part of The Great Climate Change Swindle where I am describing the fact that the ocean tends to expel carbon dioxide where it is warm, and to absorb it where it is cold, my intent was to explain that warming the ocean could be dangerous—because it is such a gigantic reservoir of carbon. By its placement in the film, it appears that I am saying that since carbon dioxide exists in the ocean in such large quantities, human influence must not be very important—diametrically opposite to the point I was making—which is that global warming is both real and threatening.
