“Emis­sions: Im­pos­si­ble,”

The Walrus - - THE WALRUS - anne cas­sel­man

“I don’t re­ally re­mem­ber my civics class from high school, to be hon­est. But what I re­al­ized in writ­ing this story is that, when it comes to gov­ern­ment ac­tion, the power of in­cre­men­tal bu­reau­cracy in achiev­ing change is re­ally un­der­es­ti­mated. As I started to read about some of the find­ings of the au­di­tor gen­eral’s re­ports on Canada’s pre­pared­ness for cli­mate change, one thing I re­ally came to ap­pre­ci­ate is the power of ef­fec­tive pol­icy im­ple­men­ta­tion. And it sounds so dry, but when it comes to adapt­ing to cli­mate change, it’s re­ally go­ing to be what will help.”

Anne Cas­sel­man is a Van­cou­ver-based writer whose work has ap­peared in Sci­en­tific Amer­i­can, Na­tional Ge­o­graphic News, and Bcbusi­ness.
