Climate Change: Why, Where, and What to Do?

Description:Fossil fuel combustion, particularly coal, and associated release of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere is warming Earth. The warming is particularly profound in high northern latitudes but its impacts are global, ranging broadly from insults to human health to distortions of world food prices. Moreover, carbon dioxide emissions are acidifying the sea, with serious pending consequences for marine life including coral reefs. We have a small window of opportunity to slow such changes; a first step must be to remove coal from our energy diet. How this might be accomplished via integration of the Canadian electrical grid will be discussed.
