Is it possible to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees?
The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Climate Futures Initiative and SFU’s Faculty of Environment have co-hosted the first talk of the Climate Futures Series: The SCIENCE, IMPACTS and SOLUTIONS to limit global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees.

Under the Paris Agreement 195 nations set a goal to limit an increase in the world's average temperature to "well below" 2 degrees Celsius, while pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5 degrees. They invited the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to assess the impacts of greenhouse gas emission pathways consistent with a global warming of 1.5 degrees. The report was released in early October.

This presentation will explore climate change and flow regulation impacts on daily and annual river discharge variations and trends into Hudson Bay, the Nechako and Fraser River Basins over the past half-century or so. The first part of the talk will focus on the 3.7 million km2 Hudson Bay drainage basin for which daily observed streamflow data from the Water Survey of Canada, Manitoba Hydro, Ontario Power Generation and Hydro-Québec for 21 rivers are used in the analyses spanning 1960-2016.

Natural gas is the source of one-quarter of the British Columbia’s greenhouse gas emissions. But there is another way to generate this energy that could provide substantial emissions reductions: renewable natural gas (RNG), derived from diverse organic waste sources.
