Event Notes


CBC Quirks and Quarks Host Bob McDonald - The Future Is Now

"The Future is Now" starts with the good news that all the technology to go green already exists. No new inventions are needed to move to a low carbon economy. And there is no shortage of energy. It falls out of the sky, blows on the wind, bubbles out of the ground, flows on the tides, it even grows on trees. This presentation will look at the latest in alternative energy systems, energy storage and efficiency, including re-thinking oil so energy can still be extracted without polluting the atmosphere.

A new green industrial revolution is under way. The time has come to embrace it.This event is the Keynote for the "Electrify Salt Spring! Accelerating paths to Carbon Zero" events celebrating 10yrs of Salt Spring Community Energy.

Q&A to be hosted after the talk.

Bob’s Book, The Future Is Now: Solving The Climate Crisis With Today’s Technologies, will be on sale in the lobby.
