Interview with Charles Hodgson of Ecology Ottawa on the City of Ottawa Greenhouse Gas Inventory


Click the audio player to hear my interview with Charles Hodgson of Ecology Ottawa who produces the excellent blog climateottawa.ca. Right click here to download the interview. We discuss the recent City of Ottawa greenhouse inventory and what is going on at city hall with regard to Ottawa’s commitment to reducing GHGs. As Charles points out, the City of Ottawa’s own numbers show that we’re not achieving our climate change targets. What’s more, although evidence shows climate change is everyone’s problem some city councillors don’t think it’s a municipal issue and are trying to suppress discussion.

You can help by telling your local city councilor that Ottawa needs a climate change plan and we need to make a stronger commitment to reducing the city’s emissions. Even more effective would be to attend the meeting of the City’s Environment Committee on Tuesday, June 19 to tell them in person. The meeting is at 9:30 am in the Champlain Room (that’s in the heritage building portion of city hall). Click here for more info.
