Dr. Colin Yates of the University of Waterloo Summit Centre for the Environment discusses a feasibility study with Muskoka Futures in CottageCountryNow.ca.
"Over the past few months I have been making my way around Muskoka, immersing myself in its culture, attending events, like Business After Hours, the President’s Ball and making acquaintances with numerous motivated people. I have been impressed by the hard work and dedication of the organizers of Film North and Nuit Blanche North, the generosity of the members from the various local lake associations as well as the ingenuity of the Huntsville Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce."
Daniel Scott, director of the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change discusses the climate change related challenges to the ski industry.
"Last winter, Mother Nature wreaked havoc on the ski industry. With snowfall totals down by about half and March temperatures soaring into the 80s, skier visits were off by more than 20 percent in the Northeast — the worst season in two decades."
Jason Thistlethwaite Director, Climate Change Adaptation Project Contributes to The Huffington Post.
"Doom and gloom predictions about future climate change do little to help solve the problem. International organizations, environmental groups and government delegates heading to Doha next week for the latest round of United Nations negotiations on climate change should heed this message."
