(Feb 28) The Impacts of 1.5 Degrees

The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Climate Futures Initiative and Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Environment are pleased to introduce the Climate Futures Series: The SCIENCE, the IMPACTS and SOLUTIONS to limit global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees.

On February 28th, the Impacts of 1.5 Degrees talk will focus on the approach used by the scientific community to assess literature relevant to the question of what is dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system: the IPCC’s so-called “reasons for concern”, including what they are, how they evolved, and what the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees says, particularly for the selected human and natural systems. The presentation will also explore the benefits of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees compared with 2 degrees.

Presenter: Kristie Ebi, Director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment, University of Washington, USA
Respondent: Stewart J. Cohen, Environment and Climate Change Canada
Moderator: Tim Takaro, Professor, Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University
WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 28 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
