Even the highly conservative International Energy Agency recently confirmed business-as-usual gets us to nearly 6° C of warming this century. Yet we remain paralyzed. Why?
Join author Tom Rand at MaRS Discovery District for the launch of his new book, Waking the Frog: Solutions for Our Climate Change Paralysis.
