Abstract: 

This video clip comprises the three presentations of Panel Session 1, “Defining the Issues: Climate Science, Health and Gerontological Perspectives” held at the 20th Annual John K. Friesen Conference, "Growing Old in a Changing Climate: Exploring the Interface Between Population Aging and Global Warming," MAY 25-26, 2011, Vancouver, BC. Dr. John Stone "Climate change and the threat to an aging population" - This talk will explore the science of climate change and its implications for an aging population. It will explain why climate change is a broad threat to society, the economy and the environment; and how the climate is likely to change focussing on the increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather and climate events which are a particular threat to older people.

We also gratefully acknowledge a grant from the SFU Library's Scholarly Digitization Fund for videography and post-production editing.
