On January 14 at 3:30 at IRMACS at SFU Burnaby, Dr. Andrew Weaver, Green MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head and Professor of Ocean and Earth Sciences at UVic, will be giving a talk titled: "Political Challenges and Opportunities to Climate Change Mitigation: A View From the Front Lines".
Abstract: What does the present generation owe to future generations regarding the quality of the environment? Many of today’s elected decision-makers are focused on short-term decision-making. What are the political opportunities and challenges associated with efforts to ensure political decision-makers consider the long term consequences of their climate and energy policy while balancing a myriad other immediately-pressing issues?
