UVIC CLIMATOLOGIST ANDREW WEAVER, BSC ’83, looks at climate change through distinctly Canadian lens in his new book Keeping Our Cool (Viking Canada). Weaver, lead author for the Nobel-prize winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, contends that the seriousness of the issue is still not resonating with the public.
His book, written for a general audience, is an urgent call for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. During the federal election campaign, he took the unusual step (for a scientist) of vocally backing the federal Liberal party’s climate platform.
