The gracious lawns of the College of Charleston

We have arrived for unseasonably warm and sticky weather here in Charleston, but the scenery is restorative (as well as the overenthusiastic air conditioning). Day one of ISSRM2015 saw all of the presentations directly related to our Energy Transitions in Canada project. Kristina Keilty was up first thing, talking about local baselines of acceptability around the Mactaquac headpond, then Matt Dairon talking about his southern Alberta Q-method case study. John Parkins used our National Energy Survey to examine whether trust was actually good, if we want more public participation in energy decisions, and I presented a poster on our Before the Mactaquac Dam storymap. Four different dimensions of the project, with varying scales and methods, and all received a positive buzz.
