MEDIA ADVISORY/PHOTO OP - David Suzuki warns of the climate change consequences of putting economic and political considerations first



Ontario Science Centre launches Great Conversations speakers Series on September 21 with Canada's preeminent environmentalist

TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2017 /CNW/ - Welcome to the Anthropocene. Human beings have become the driving force shaping the properties of the biosphere and we are now facing a challenge unlike any other. As part of its new speaker series Great Conversations, the Ontario Science Centre presents environmentalist David Suzuki in a frank discussion about climate change, with Daily Planet's Ziya Tong as moderator. Suzuki questions whether we have the foresight to choose a path to survival or allow economics and politics to drive us in the opposite direction as the urgency of climate change becomes clear.
