“Surely we can agree on the basics. We need clean air, potable water and food from healthy soils to stay alive and healthy. We can’t keep rapidly burning fossil fuels and destroying carbon sinks like forests and wetlands without destabilizing Earth’s carbon cycle and climatic systems. We can’t keep dumping plastic and other waste into the oceans.” - David Suzuki. .
Dr. Suzuki has been a role model of mine for many years. I’ve admired his calm and passionate stance on environmental issues and his evidence-based approach to research and evaluation. He is receiving an honourary degree from University of Alberta this year, and I hope that this gesture continues to push our environmental impact to the front of our political, personal, and institutional conversations. #davidsuzuki #universityofalberta #honorarydegree #suzuki #environmentalissues - 1 month ago
