Tying agricultural and environment issues together
Director of the World Climate Research Program speaks at Guelph
emma wilson
On Jan. 9, the University of Guelph was given the opportunity of hosting a talk led by Ghassam Asrar, Director of the World Climate Research Program in Geneva, Switzerland. The talk, entitled, “Climate and Agriculture: Risks and Opportunities,” explored the significance of agriculture and food security in a world that is growing in population, and that will be undergoing many climactic changes in the future. Asrar spoke of a phenomenon called the temperature anomaly, which compares current temperatures with historical records. Normally, periods of warming are balanced by cooler years, however in the last few decades, unprecedented warming periods have not been accompanied by adequate cooling, says Asrar. According to the researcher, agriculture is the most climate-dependent economic sector, and it is also intensely connected to other economic sectors. Extreme climate events can lead to crop failure, food insecurity, soil erosion, frequent forest fires, and more pathogens and diseases. “The implications of climate change will vary in different parts of the world,” noted Asrar. Some of the worst-case scenarios of declines in agricultural productivity could include mass migrations, famine, and decreased food security. To determine how to respond, Asrar stated that, “solution-oriented sciences and collaboration among researchers of many disciplines are required. Research conclusions also need to be more readily adopted and applied to climate challenges.” vAnessA tiGnAnelli “The bottom line is that we need to reduce our vulnerability to cli- Ghassam Asrar speaks about the relationship between climate and agriculture. mate change,” continued the speaker.

Bus cancellations confuse situation
Kelsey coughlin
As a result of the Ontario Labour Relations Board decision, the elementary school teachers’ day of protest, which planned to close schools on Jan. 11, was deemed illegal.

The day of protest planned to protect and promote the rights of teachers all over Ontario, but was determined illegal in the early morning of Jan. 11. The ruling came from the Ontario Labour Relations Board and the decision was met with mixed reactions. Teachers who are part of the Upper Grand District School Board were prepared to stage a walkout to protest Bill 115 – a bill

gaining the reputation of impeding on the rights of teachers all over the province. More specifically, Bill 115, otherwise known as the Putting Students First Act, has been under scrutiny since it first came to public awareness in late 2012. Among the main points of Bill 115, all teachers are subjected to a twoyear pay freeze, a reduction of ...se e wa lkou t pag e 3
