    Climate Change Deep Dive | North99 Election Podcast

    Climate Change Deep Dive | North99 Election Podcast

    We all know climate change is a big problem. But do we really understand the problem? Like, how much do we emit? Who emits it? How much do we need to reduce emissions if we don't want to cook ourselves? And what are the most promising technologies and clean energy sources we should focus our resources developing?

    Basically, how do we fix this thing?

    These are the questions I had, and fortunately Robin Edger — the Executive Director of Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment — had the answers. 

    He's my guest in this week's episode of the North99 Election Podcast. Enjoy!

    What if you released a platform and nobody cared? | North99 Election Podcast

    What if you released a platform and nobody cared? | North99 Election Podcast

    Taylor and Geoff sit down in the middle of a light week to chat about the platforms, and why nothing the campaigns have done seem to be doing much to move voters.

    Then we ask why the parties are so reluctant to focus on climate change when voters say it's their top issue (at least in this Angus Reid survey of swing ridings).
