Professor John Smol from the Department of Biology at Queen’s University and Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change joins us in this segment.  Smol has observed that there were “two very different directions for the environment [that were]  contested with the US elections. The outcome will not only affect local environmental issues, but also the largest global problem facing humanity today — climate change. Time is running out, as we continue sleepwalking to disaster.”  Learn more from Professor Smol about his views on the prospects for the environment and policy-making related to climate change following the Joe Biden’s election in the United States on November 7th 2020.
