Thanks @RovingHeather for this picture of the panel getting underway today, October 15, 2019.

Interesting day yesterday with the MacEachen Institute’s panel on climate change policy, “Resilience or Reluctance?”. It is available online here. My contribution hinged on climax thinking, and its application in coastal adaptation in NS. Having the sublime Megan Leslie there, a week before election, bought us some coverage (CTV/Canadian Press, as well as this nice piece in DalNews). The next day, panel chair Blair Feltmate and SRES alumna/HRM Energy & Environment head Shannon Miedema led a workshop on climate adaptation. Always great to have discussions cross academic/policy/practice lines. Below is Bernard showing me data contradictory to Feltmate’s message on fossil fuel futures and the futility of mitigation.
