Shortened Rideau Canal skating seasons. Rising water levels on the Rideau River. Raging wildfires in Fort McMurray. Worsening floods across the country. Severe weather events have increasingly dominated news reports, given their unpredictable appearance and the huge cost to individuals and communities, both financially and in terms of human misery. Our world’s climate patterns are surely changing; Spur explores the science, the economics and the policy implications, and asks how can we nudge Canada and the world in the direction we need to go?
With Craig Stewart, Federal VP of the Insurance Bureau of Canada and Andrew Revkin, American science and environmental journalist. More panelists to be announced soon.
