Emergency: The Citizen’s Guide to Climate Success (2021 Hagey Lecture)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, October 27, 2021 — 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM EDT


Energy economist and author Mark Jaccard will deliver the 2021 University of
Waterloo Hagey Lecture on October 27.

In this talk, Mark Jaccard speaks about how climate-concerned citizens can
overcome myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate
impacts. Actions can involve personal consumption choices (electric vehicles,
heat pumps) but these only have an effect if citizens are also engaged in the
political process and civil society to elect and support climate-sincere
politicians. These personal and collective efforts must align with and foster
a global strategy of decarbonization, especially in developing countries.
Tune in to find out what is required on a simple path to climate success and
what you can contribute.
