On December 14th at Redpath Museum, we held our first symposium.
This event featured talks by eminent researchers to help demystify the science of climate change and explain global climate trends, including impacts on terrestrial, riparian and marine environments and on human society. The speakers addressed climate policy at the provincial, federal and international levels, with special focus on strategies for concerned citizens to influence these policies. They also talked about the history and future of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the impact that international policy should have on our national policy in Canada.
