Fires, floods, and the new normal of climate change: Ranking Canada’s response

Warren Mabee, Director and Associate Dean, School of Policy Studies

It has been a summer of extreme weather across much of the northern hemisphere.  Europe has seen major rivers dry up and major fires; in Canada, provinces including BC and Newfoundland and Labrador have suffered from extensive forest fires.  The Arctic region continues to be hard-hit by the rapidly changing climate, with new data indicating that warming is happening 4x faster in this region than elsewhere around the world.  Canada is building an increasingly complex policy response to the threat of climate change; we review where we are at and the likelihood of achieving these goals.

This is a free, public event that will be available to in-person audiences and via Zoom for online viewers. 

Please note that registration will be necessary for people wishing to view via Zoom..  Visit the website for Zoom registration info.
