Saturday April 25, 2020. Energy Rights and Wrongs. Can we do more right? Yes we can.

The effects of global warming are here locally and abroad – from rapidly swinging lake levels in Georgian Bay to more intense bush fires in Australia - to name a few.

Many scientists are afraid of being called alarmist, and that there is a conservative bias in much reporting on future scenarios that could result in a lack of preparation. This was noted by Georgian Bay’s Executive Director who attended a presentation from Dr. Huaiping Zhu, professor in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, Faculty of Science, York University, who received a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) to improve climate risk assessments in the province. David noted with alarm that Dr. Zhu’s modelling showed a trajectory of 6-9 degrees of warming in northern communities. Northern limit of corn crops today is Parry Sound…by 2100 it will be almost up to James Bay.
Electric Vehicle Event Picture
While we can’t reverse where we are now, we can collectively work together to limit its extent by century end. At Georgian Bay Forever (GBF), we are committed to bringing helpful information and solutions to you.

On April 25th in Toronto, GBF invites you to an event that includes 2 parts in each session:
  1. Learn more about Ontario’s renewable energy grid, and future possibilities from David Sweetnam.
  2. Test drive an electric vehicle. Ask Plug ‘N Drive experts any questions you want to know.
Tickets are $20 each and include light fare and refreshments.

Register for your choice of session (either morning or afternoon):

GBF’s Position on Global Warming

“We cannot avoid the consequences of our warming climate but we can take actions to limit the damage,reduce our carbon dioxide emissions and,over the longterm,limit the warming of our planet.” From GBF’s position papaer. Learn more about impacts on Georgian Bay and GBF’s position here:
