UN climate report undergoing final review: Queen's University expert

2013-11-12

Queen’s University energy policy expert Warren Mabee is available to comment on the United Nations review of a draft report on the climate. The report raises the probability that climate change is man-made to 95 percent and looks to explain the slowed global warming this century.

“The latest IPCC report is a case study in the complexity of rapidly evolving science,” says Dr. Mabee. “We know that we’ve impacted our planet, but predicting how the planet will respond is a challenge. Mitigation of our impacts remains a key factor going forward.”

Dr. Mabee, who is the director of the Queen’s University Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy, has authored numerous studies examining policy for renewable energy options, and has provided expert advice to both federal and provincial governments on the development of strategies to reduce our reliance upon fossil energy sources.
