“Fixing Saskatchewan’s Climate Change Plan“
As climate change becomes a global health and ecological emergency, we face the challenge of sharply reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Saskatchewan government’s climate plan, “Prairie Resilience”, starts us on the path to managing our greenhouse gas emissions, but on its own it will not enable us to do our fair share of Canada’s commitments under the Paris Climate Accord. Peter Prebble and Ann Coxworth, two of the authors of “Prairie Resilience” Is Not Enough, will outline the local and global impacts of climate change now being observed. They will then present a comprehensive plan for reducing greenhouse gas pollution in every sector of the Saskatchewan economy.
