Are we going to be totally screwed by climate change?

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join the Office of Sustainability at MacEwan University for the Sustainability 201 Speaker Series featuring Geoff Dembicki.

As wildfires rage across the west, it’s clear climate change is getting worse. But with B.C. and Alberta ready to kill each other over pipelines, our leaders seem unable to address the crisis with the urgency it requires. Geoff Dembicki draws from his travels to the 2015 Paris climate talks, a Philippines city destroyed by a typhoon, a Republican social club in Washington, DC, and other locales to answer this era’s defining question.
