Q & A
Climate change causing Calgary to alter how it plans for the future
'What well have to do over the next number of years is start
rewriting our standards'
Climate change is often treated as this big, looming threat that's
going to alter our lives sometime in the future.
Well, the future is closer than you think.
Climate change is already having an effect on Calgary.
It's forcing the city to rethink everything from how roads are built
to what kind of trees are planted.
That was the focus of the Calgary Climate Symposium, which wraps up
As if climate has never changed before.
I really don't know what Gordo's point is but... he is probably clueless as well, except that he just demonstrates easily predictable reaction to phrase "climate change".
"A: We have a co-ordinated approach at the city to look at our
operations and look at the services we are providing to Calgarians. We
follow an international process where we first identify the various
risks, then look at how we can actually reduce that.
So we've come up with over 1,000 actions at the city, everything from
transportation, land use to business continuity.... The next step we
want to take is to really start working with Calgarians, and that is
what we are doing this week. It's reaching out to them and creating
that mutual understanding."
