Waking the Frog: Breaking Our Paralysis on Climate Change

Lecture and Book signing by Tom Rand, P.Eng., PhD
Mar 6/14

Date: Mar 6/14
Time: 18:00 - 21:00
Location: Senate and Board Chamber
Cost: Free and Open to Public

It is clear to anyone who counts carbon levels and reads the business
pages that - despite good intentions - our global economy is on
a collision course with extreme climate change. Even the highly
conservative International Energy Agency recently confirmed
business-as-usual gets us to nearly 6 C of warming this century.
Yet we remain paralyzed. Why?

TOM RAND gets at the underlying reasons that keep us from
acting with effort and on a scale relevant to the problem. From
the psychology of denial, to impoverished economic models, to
a misunderstanding of market dynamics, to a deep and inherent
conservatism in the business community.
