Beyond 'An Inconvenient Truth'

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. Every day the science becomes clearer: greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of oil, coal and natural gas are disrupting our planet’s fundamental operating systems. And every day the symptoms – temperature extremes, intense weather
systems, severe drought, rising sea levels and more – become more evident.

The good news is this: We already have all the solutions we need to reduce our emissions and solve climate change: renewable energy – particularly wind and solar – is getting cheaper by the day, and a flood of new and innovative technologies, from electric vehicles to grid-scale storage batteries, are bringing a cleaner, greener world within our reach. What’s missing? Strong, decisive action – on the part of our elected leaders, and on the part of each of us.

In 2007, Carl Duivenvoorden became one of the very first Canadians to be trained by US Vice President Al Gore. Since then, he has presented his local and updated version of Mr. Gore’s slideshow more than 300 times to over 40,000 people across Atlantic Canada and in the US. His presentation is based on ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, former US Vice President Al Gore’s Academy Award-winning movie and book.

In this engaging keynote discussion followed by an open Q&A, you will leave feeling equipped after learning about:
The science of climate: how our planet’s natural systems work
The causes and impacts of climate change
What’s needed to solve climate change
Solutions, including actions anyone can take starting today

This event will be held in room #113 of the Wu Centre, located in the Sir James Dunn building in the Mount Allison campus (map #18), sponsored by the Department of Geography and Environment, and is open to all members of the public for free, but please RSVP as seating is limited.
