Monday, March 16, 2020; 12:00-12:30
Room MB 9B, 9th floor of the John Molson Building (MB) at 1450 Ave. Guy
This presentation points out the need to become aware of the costs that are excluded, or externalized, in market cost calculation, i.e., cost of Carbon emitted, Land destroyed, human and ecological Health, ecological destruction due to Packaging, and Water (CLHPW). New lifestyles and products need to be developed to reduce the CLHPW cost. The urgency of climate action, however, makes it necessary to focus on carbon. The guiding idea is to decarbonize our lifestyle and to grow plants for carbon catching. The presentation invites participants to imagine what could be their planet positive actions.
