Tax it? Trade it? Is Curbing Carbon enough?

June 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Ontario and Quebec just had another historic 100 year flood… two years after the last record-breaking 100 year flood. Last summer Ontario, BC, and California all experienced unprecedented wildfires. From Mozambique to Puerto Rico to the Gulf Coast tens of thousands have been displaced by more frequent and powerful hurricanes. Indonesia is about to move its capital from Jakarta partly because of flood risks to its sinking metropolis, while the residents of the Solomon Islands are relocating entire towns in anticipation of the eventual total evacuation and submersion of their country.

How do we realistically deal with the climate crisis we are already experiencing? What is the most effective way to curb carbon? Is curbing carbon enough? If taxing carbon kills jobs, how do we deal with the climate change crisis? We are no longer looking at distant future.

Andrea McDowell, City of Hamilton, Climate mitigation project manager and Ellen Lourie, Policy Associate, International Emissions Trading Association joins us on June 17 at the Madison (14 Madison Avenue) to talk about how our best options to deal with the climate change already coming at us and what our hopes are to not make it worse.

Doors open at 7:00pm. Discussion starts promptly at 7:15pm.


Please RSVP to let us know you can join us.
