Raymond Leury | Part 2: GHG Trends | 2024-02-07| CACOR Zoom

February 7 @ 13:30 - 16:30 EST

Speaker:  Raymond Leury

Subject: Part 2: GHG Trends and Reasons for Hope and Rapid Progress on the Climate Front.

Time: Feb 7, 2024 13:30 Eastern Time (US and Canada)


Climate change is an existential threat. Temperature records keep falling, climate emergencies are declared,
yet we don’t seem to be making much progress in addressing the threat. How much progress have we made? There is no
doubt that we are going to continue to see average temperatures increase for some time. What are our prospects for
keeping those increases low enough so that we can avoid total societal collapse and a return to the stone age? Are we too
late? The most recent data coupled with some analysis and careful forecasting shows that there are some paths that
would substantially limit temperature increases and create conditions for a “soft landing.” For those paths to be realized,
we need all hands-on deck and unprecedented cooperation because there is not a minute to waste.


Raymond Leury, who has always been interested in science & environmental issues. Ten years ago he
bought his first EV, which led him to become President of the Electric Vehicle Council of Ottawa (EVCO). Now retired from
a long IT career, Raymond spends much of his time researching and advocating for EVs of all sizes from light duty to
medium and heavy-duty vehicles. This led to a successful campaign to get OC Transpo to transition to e-buses.
