Climate and Clean Economy
The climate crisis is the greatest threat facing humanity. Extreme weather events are increasing in severity and frequency. Our planet is heating up because of human-caused carbon pollution, and it's putting our water, food and health at risk. We can solve this, but we need to act now.
To avoid dangerous levels of climate change, we need to completely phase-out polluting fossil fuels and reduce our carbon pollution to zero by mid-century.
At this presentation, a presenter from Environmental Defence will discuss the economic and environmental risks of tar sands pipelines, particularly Energy East, Canadian and international climate policy, and how we can begin a managed decline of the tar sands and build a thriving clean economy.
Presented by Environmental Defence as part of Toronto Public Library's Fragile Planet program series.
