UPEI Climate Lab hosting summer seminars
Can the Earth and humanity survive the current geological age?
That topic will be discussed today as UPEI’s Climate Lab hosts a breakfast seminar with David MacDonald.
The seminar will discuss the question, “Are Oceans Us? The Climate/Ocean Crisis: How can we end the Global ‘Addiction’ to Fossil Fuels,” and runs from 8-10 a.m. at 618 University Ave. in Charlottetown.
MacDonald grew up in P.E.I., and holds several honorary degrees in law and divinity.
He was ordained as a United Church minister in 1961, serving as pastor of the United Church in Alberton from 1962 to 1965.
He has most recently served as special advisor on climate and ocean change for the United Church of Canada.
“David MacDonald has a prestigious history of working on the important issues that shape not only Prince Edward Island and the country of Canada, but also the world,” said Adam Fenech, director of the climate research unit at UPEI.
“His detailed knowledge of the economic, social, and ecological
sustainability of Prince Edward Island is unparalleled, and this series allows us all to learn from it.”
The UPEI breakfast seminars will be held Tuesday mornings from July 4 to Aug. 22.
