Energy2100: Making the Lakes Great (Apr 22 & 23)    Tue Apr 22 to Wed Apr 23, 2008, Toronto, ON

Energy2100: Making the Lakes Great
April 22 & 23, 2008
MaRS Discovery Centre, Toronto, Ontario

We have reached a crossroads and are presented with an opportunity for change. Energy 2100: Making the Lakes Great opens the dialogue on our energy future as we search for energy options that sustain our Great Lakes.

The Great Lakes, which contain 20% of the world’s surface freshwater and are home to a broad variety of natural habitats, are under serious threat. Huge swaths of wetlands have been lost, thousands of miles of rivers are impaired, and miles of shoreline are degraded. Invasive species ply the waters, and climate change places human and ecosystem health in peril.

Under the leadership of the University’s Dofasco Centre for Engineering and Public Policy, Energy 2100: Making the Lakes Great marks the first time experts from Canada, the United States and China will gather to confront an emerging public policy challenge. The challenge is to develop energy policy that sustains the Great Lakes ecosystem and the health of people living within the Great Lakes basin. Topics include:

• Global perspectives on energy security, competitiveness and
renewable energy sources

• The impacts of mercury emissions on Great Lakes communities

• Impact of climate change on Great Lakes water quality and quantity
