The McGill Global Health Committee of IFMSA-Quebec is organizing a conference that will not only explore the impacts of climate change on human health here and on a global scale but also transform this awareness into change and action.
Weather, which changes day-to-day due to constant fluctuations in the atmosphere, and climate, which varies over decades, are familiar. More recently, a third regime, called “macroweather,” has been used to describe the relatively stable regime between weather and climate.

In conjunctions with our colleagues in Geography, through the Geospectives Speaker Series, Victoria Slonosky will be at McGill to present her research on the St Lawrence.

Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

Last year, the Quebec Skeptics Society laid down a challenge: “If anthropogenic global warming is as strong as scientists claim, then why do they need supercomputers to demonstrate it?”
My immediate response was: “They don’t.”

Lecture by Catherine Potvin (Trottier Professor, Principal Investigator, Neotropical Ecology Lab, Biology, McGill)
While short-term weather is notoriously volatile, climate is thought to represent a kind of average weather pattern over a long period of time. This dichotomy provides the analytical framework for scientific thinking about atmospheric variability, including climate change.
