    Talks About Carbon Reduction? It's All Hot Air Unless you Remove It.

    Talks About Carbon Reduction? It's All Hot Air Unless you Remove It.

    If we want to make a significant dent in the reduction of global warming a sharp pivot towards the idea of reversing the effects of climate change might be a better approach. As the primary greenhouse gas responsible for emissions is carbon, taking the action of reduction one step further and considering removal might make significant impacts and might lead to an absolute zero. Disruption is necessary. The good news is that Canada has options to make the transition easier. Founder and CEO of Carbon Cure, Robert Niven, takes us through carbon capture, sequestration and some innovative technology that will give us the push we need. While, Scotiabank’s Vice President of Social Impact & Sustainability, Sandra Odendahl, will take us through carbon management, and give strategies and policy suggestions that can give us a global advantage.

    If you build it green, they will come

    If you build it green, they will come

    Buildings consume vast amounts of our natural resources and contribute highly to climate change. 17% of Canada's emissions come from residential commercial and institutional buildings, making this an important area of opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas. When we build it must be with green intent. Zahra Ebrahim explains why participatory design might reveal innovations we’ve not yet thought about. Fin Macdonald talks LEED and gives us a sneak peek at renewable strategy in the building sector. And, Leslie Woo looks at the built environment with a lens we might not have considered.

    Transportation and it’s Most Important Passenger: Clean Energy

    Transportation and it’s Most Important Passenger: Clean Energy

    With transportation being one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases, we need to put our foot on the gas when headed to a cleaner mobile future. Transpod creator Ryan Janzen gives us a peek into “Made in Canada” hyperloop transportation. Professor Eric Miller explains what we must consider in the integration of decarbonized modes of transport and existing infrastructure. And, Marianne Hatzopoulous tells us why electric vehicles and autonomous cars are not the only answer to lowering greenhouse gas emissions; We’ve still got work to do.
