“If we had started working on climate change in the late 80’s, we could have solved it by now,” Dr. Homer-Dixon told the crowd of more than 200 at the 2016 FPA Currents Lecture on September 16th. “Today, the overlap between feasible and enough has shrunk. I can’t tell you if it still exists.”

As the CIGI Chair of Global Systems at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, Dr. Homer-Dixon is dedicated to addressing the biggest challenge of our lifetimes—climate change. In his lecture, he presented not only the stark facts of our climate reality, but also a step-by-step approach to mitigating the effects that are already in motion.
