“Climate Change Reality – A Hot Topic”

 

Guest Speakers: Robin and Marian White

Their world travels, often for months on end – from mountain and boreal forest to the equator, through tropical forests, deserts, savannahs, biodiversity hotspots, urban and rural landscapes teeming with people, and Denmark, a leader in renewable energy – were life-changing.

They are authors of the award-winning book, Wild Alberta at the Crossroads.

 

The Whites present right-up-to-date pictures, video, charts, tables, text, and narrative to walk the audience through the reality and science of climate change, the perverse behaviour of the denial industry, key concerns, the carbon dioxide reduction targets needed, government performance, and where we go from here.

 

As of 2011, they are presenters for former US vice-president Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.
