In September 2018, Bob Sandford delivered the keynote presentation at the Asset Management BC Annual Conference at the Radisson Hotel in the City of Richmond (in the Metro Vancouver region).

On behalf of the United Nations, he spoke to the gravity and global implications of what has happened in the Northern Hemisphere this past summer; and to the new science that is pouring in

Bob Sandford made several never-before-made, nationally and internationally important pronouncements at the Asset Management BC conference. The urgency of new developments is such that these pronouncements were framed as a call to action.

Bob Sandford had spent the previous two months in research and in collaboration with climate scientists around the world to characterize what we saw and are learning from this horrific summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

After examination of the evidence he is of the view that that if it hasn’t already, the heightened anxiety that he and many others are already experiencing personally with respect to the rapid acceleration of climate disruption we are witnessing is about to become a permanent part of the human condition.

On the same date, Bob Sandford made presentations on two continents. The other was in China where he informed an international audience about the current climate instability in the Northern Hemisphere. Bob’s presentation to the BC audience was delivered via this video.
