Dr. Oskar Sigvaldason to examine climate change & transforming energy systems at upcoming lecture
Date: March 19, 2020
Time: 5:30PM Reception / 6PM Lecture
Location: Robert B. Schultz Theatre, St. John’s College
One of the truly dominant challenges facing mankind today is mitigation against the consequences of climate change and global warming. This involves major transformations of our economic and energy systems. This is a complex challenge, requiring transformations in virtually every sector of our society. Dr. Oskar Sigvaldason will be giving a presentation on approach and methodology developed and applied in Canada. This includes defining long-term “pathways” with associated strategies, for transforming energy systems, for satisfying increasingly stringent GHG mitigation targets. These include a 30% reduction in emissions by 2030, relative to 2005 (Paris Accord – 2015), and an 80% reduction by 2050 (Canada’s strategic plan presented at COP 22 meeting – 2016).
