Free Sessions - Open to the Public, but we ask that you RSVP as space is limited to 40 attendees.

We will be giving away a door prize at this session.

In this Lecture: You release greenhouse gases as a result of using energy to drive, using electricity to light and heat your home, and through other activities that support our quality of life like growing food, raising livestock and throwing away garbage.

Greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced through simple measures like changing light bulbs and properly inflating your tires. Climate change may be a big problem, but there are many little things we can do to make a difference.

Lecturer: Don Macdonald, M.SC. from the University of Alberta, Professional Geologist (APEGGA).

Don worked as a research geologist with the Alberta Geological Survey for 15 years and published many reports and journal articles. He then developed expertise in the energy sector and energy technologies while working at the Department of Energy in Edmonton. For the last 13 years he has been a senior policy advisor on climate change with the Department of the Environment. Don has attended more than six United Nations climate change meeting with provincial Ministers, or on his own, while representing Alberta on the Canadian delegation.
