Published on Sep 25, 2014

In this 5th video, climate scientist Paul Beckwith shares where the “safest” locations might be, where populations might migrate to and from as the climate continues to fluctuate drastically around the globe. He also touches upon future options; where we’re headed, what steps should be considered and whether governments will take the necessary steps.

Paul Beckwith is a professor of geography/meterology with a laboratory for paleoclimatology and climatology and is doctoral candidate of climatology at the University of Ottawa. He holds a science masters degree in laser physics and a BS in engineering physics. He is also a chess master. His dissertation is on abrupt climate change in the past and present. Due to the urgency of the current climate situation, Paul left up successful careers to devote himself to the study of the most pressing issue of our time – climate change.

To avoid catastrophic climate change, most fossil fuels must remain unburned. Global consensus is emerging for aggressive climate legislation that will restrict fossil fuels, resulting in stranded assets – fossil fuel reserves that are no longer able to earn an economic return as a result of the changes in the market and regulatory environment.

This forum brings together people working with public investments to share and learn about climate risk and carbon liabilities.
