VANCOUVER — Members of the David Suzuki Foundation’s climate team are available for interviews at the United Nations climate summit in Paris, taking place between November 30 and December 12. These talks represent the beginning of a new phase in global climate action, with political, business, religious and civil society groups working together for global action to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and eliminate carbon pollution.

The delegation will be led by Science and Policy Manager Ian Bruce, a former geophysicist with the oil and gas industry with 12 years of renewable energy advocacy and climate change policy experience. Bruce will be featured during the Canadian segment of Al Gore’s 24 Hours of Climate Reality broadcast on November 13 and will be available for interviews in Paris along with Climate and Clean Energy Communications and Research Specialist Steve Kux. Spokespeople at the Foundation’s Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal offices can offer media perspectives on climate announcements from Paris as they affect Canadians at home.

“With climate leadership already underway at municipal and provincial levels, we are optimistic that Canada’s federal government can seize the opportunity that Paris presents, with support from Canadians, to coordinate an effective and responsible national strategy to cut carbon pollution and build a strong economy for Canada based on renewable energy and clean technology,” Bruce said.
