DISRUPTION – the term we use to describe sudden upheaval and drastic change – was the theme of TEDx UNB 2018.  In his TED Talk, Carl suggests we need to challenge and disrupt two long-held paradigms of global human society if we are to disrupt that biggest disruption of all, climate change.

Commentary on Global Warming

“When I was young, my first school was located next to a factory that blanketed our playground with so much smoke that some days we weren’t allowed to go outside for recess.  It sowed within me the early seeds of concern about our environment.  When my first son Paul was born in 1999, a little voice in my head said, “Do something!” But I had no idea what to do.  The little voice got louder in 2001, when Eric was born: “DO SOMETHING!”  So I decided to write this pledge, from a new father to his son.  It aired nationally on CBC Radio May 23, 2001.  It still seems relevant today.”
