Dave-Pic-300x300On the show this week, I spoke with David Erb, the Executive Director of Protect our Winters Canada, a community of enthusiasts, professional athletes and industry brands uniting the outdoor community to address climate change. POW’s mission is to turn passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates. They believe their love of adventure in nature, demands their participation in the fight to save and protect it. So I talked to David about their work and why it’s important that those who love to get outside and enjoy winter also fight for climate action.

Dave has extensive management experience in the business and charitable sectors in Canada. He’s passionate about skiing, environmental stewardship and seeing POW Canada grow to have significant impact on climate policy in Canada.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Dianne Saxe (@EnviroLaw) at the @MiningWatch “Turning Down the Heat” conference last week. She is the former Environment Commissioner of Ontario and she gave a very compelling presentation stressing the urgency of the climate crisis. Saxe runs a web site called SaxeFacts.org and is an internationally-recognized Canadian lawyer, rated among the top 25 environmental lawyers in the world.
