Conversations that Matter
This week’s Conversation that Matters features Sara Harris, a senior instructor at the department of earth, ocean and atmospheric science at UBC. In Part 1 of our two-show conversation, Harris explains the elements of climate and how they interact. She points out that carbon dioxide has a long lifespan in the atmosphere and because it is not breaking down, it continues to accumulate. The concentration level of carbon dioxide is now over 400 parts per million and rising. Join veteran broadcaster Stuart McNish for this important and engaging Conversation that Matters on The Vancouver Sun website. Each week McNish explores the most important issues shaping the future of B.C. Become a subscriber and support the production of the program.
