Professor Jessica F. Green, an associate professor at the Department of  of Political Science and the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto, appeared on CBC’s Metro Morning to discuss the recent UN report on the role of cities in combating climate change and the need to shrink the gap between climate science and politics.

Listen to the full interview.

Professor Green also commented, in an article in the Toronto Star, on the impact cities can have when it comes to climate change and that Toronto is “in with the pack of leaders who have set these ambitious goals.” “The reality is to meet these goals you need a huge amount of effort and money,” she said. If people want to do something about it, Green said, they can “vote for people with a real climate change agenda.”
