Climate Change Warnings on Gas Pumps - Lecture by Rob Shirkey

On February 17, the City of Parksville and the Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society will host a free lecture by Robert Shirkey, executive director of Our Horizon Society. Our Horizon is a national not-for-profit organization that works with governments to require climate change labels on gas pumps. The idea is a low-cost, globally-scalable intervention to communicate the hidden costs of fossil fuels to end users and drive change upstream. The concept was developed by Our Horizon's founder and Toronto-based lawyer Robert Shirkey.

City of Parksville Council will consider this initiative on February 15 with a brief presentation by Robert. The lecture on February 17 is a chance for area residents to hear Robert speak in much more detail.

Doors open at 6.30 pm, presentation at 7 pm and questions at 8 pm.
