Climate Reality and Sustainable Solutions

  • The Tap Root 623 Dundas Street London, ON, N5W 2Z1 Canada (map)

An Information session on Climate Reality, led by Professor and Engineer Tom Davis, who was personally trained by former US vice president, Al Gore, to deliver a hard hitting, but ultimately inspirational presentation on what human produced carbon emissions have done to the planet, and how dire the sittuation will be if we don't make fast and strategic changes.

Mr. Davis and one of his top students will also highlight new technologies that are available to slow and reverse climate change. They will introduce a local London project that will retrofit 68 townhomes to net zero housing, and explain how this is possible, costs associated with the retro-fit, and the potential return on investment for such projects. 

Representatives from Earthship Biotecture will speak on less conventional sustainable building projects that use recycled materials, water catchment and treatment systems, and passive thermal heating and cooling. Londoner, Marianne Griffith will highlight her experiences building these homes abroad, her recent humanitarian off-grid build in a local First Nations community, and future plans and projects that will be happening locally.
