Canadian climate change outlook 2017 & beyond

In his opening keynote, Canada’s most charismatic climatologist, David Phillips, will draw on his nearly 50-years of experience at Environment Canada to share his though-provoking predictions about the future of flood. His predictions are based on scientific analysis, ranging from the purely atmospheric to observations about human nature.

  • How Canadian and American floods are changing
  • Do we need to adapt to climate change by rethinking green and grey infrastructure?
  • Can we use history as a guide for predicting future flooding?
