The Cost of Wildfire Season
Dr. Jennie Moore, Director of Institute Sustainability was asked on local radio what individuals can do in response to BC’s most destructive wildfire season on record. Specifically what can we can do in our communities to make them more ecologically sustainable?
Jennie started by stating that “First and foremost, in order for us to be ecologically sustainable, we have to operate all our human activities – including our global economy – within the ecological parameters that sustain all life.”
