A break from grading


in Canada, Massey College, Politics, The environment

At lunch at Massey College today, the closest available seat was beside a fellow Junior Fellow and photography client who was having lunch with Carolynn Benett, the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs.

We were soon joined by a climate change advisor from the Ontario provincial government and ended up talking about carbon capture and storage; the dangers of sea level rise; mitigation pathways for meeting the Paris Agreement climate change targets; the lack of a sufficient climate change plan from any Canadian party or government so far; the imperative not to invest further in long-lived fossil fuel infrastructure; renewable energy options; nuclear power; ways to reduce and replace diesel use in remote communities; and passive houses.

You are lucky to have run into such stimulating company. Do you know any company in Vancouver that designs and builds passive energy houses? I would be interested.

There aren’t many places in the world where such meetings happen spontaneously.

You could start with the Canadian Passive House Institute.
