Peter Prebble

This presentation is an update on climate change that encapsulates the latest climate science, important analysis by the World Meteorological Organization, recent consequences of climate change across the globe, and growing linkages between extreme weather events in Saskatchewan and climate change. Peter will then highlight provisions in the new international agreement intended to address climate change. The agreement has now been signed by 175 national governments. Cities are playing an important role in the work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Peter will conclude with some examples of actions the City of Saskatoon could take to cut community-wide greenhouse gas emissions.
