Episode 4: Climate Change (but not doom & gloom)

Listen to episode 4 here.


Kate and Tara discuss climate change and what the three provincial parties have committed to doing to fight it. Kate interviews John Robinson, a Professor at the Munk School of Global Affairs and the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto; an Honorary Professor with the Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability at The University of British Columbia; and an Adjunct Professor with the Copenhagen Business School. He explains carbon pricing and his optimistic view of how the world can combat the effects of climate change.

  • he is opposed to the Liberal’s current cap and trade system, as he worries it restricts businesses in Ontario and encourages them to move to other markets


  • instituted a cap and trade carbon pricing system in September 2017
  • has raised $2.4 billion in proceeds as of April 2018 and was praised internationally


  • endorse the Liberal cap and trade system
