Environmental Science Climate Change class visited by the Premier and the Minister for the Environment and Climate change

The ENVS 3513 Climate Change for Environmental Practitioners class was honoured to include Premier Iain Rankin and Minister Keith Irving for a question and answer session. Giving an hour of their time the premier and the minister provided a brief outline of the government's plans to develop clean-tech economy, reduce and eliminate the dependence on coal, and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Moderated by President Peter Ricketts, the class participated both online and in class with questions ranging from plans for electrification of provincial transportation, to forestry clear-cuts, and seeking advice for how today's students can make a difference for responsible environmental management.
