Dr. Gail Krantzberg and the Effects of Global Warming on the Great Lakes
Gail Krantzberg on TVO Dr. Krantzberg's research involves improving the understanding of how science can innovate effective public policy, and she has been engaged in the binational efforts under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, which calls for the Public Forum, for more than 20 years. Gail Krantzberg celebrating our Great Lakes in her own way. Dr. Gail Krantzberg If you were tasked with inspiring Ontarians to see themselves as guardians of globally magnificent bodies of water, such as the Great Lakes, where would you start? For Gail Krantzberg, it takes more than facts. Even when it's a staggering statistic such as 40 million people get their drinking water from the Great Lakes, the largest fresh water surface on the planet. Krantzberg says you need to ignite the passion of the people who live along the shores of four of the five Great Lakes through arts, music, and cultural events that will shape the future of what the Great Lakes could and should mean to Ontario. "It's majestic and awe-inspiring when you see this place where we live; the Great Lakes are like a chain of jewels that can be seen orbiting our planet from outer space," says Krantzberg, a professor with McMaster's W Booth School of Engineering Practice. "You wake up to the beauty and power of it all!" On Tuesday, March 22, in honour of World Water Day 2016, the inaugural meeting of the newly created Great Lakes Guardians' Council will meet in Toronto and Krantzberg has been asked by Environment and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray to be there. As one of North America's foremost experts on the Great Lakes ecosystem and sustainability, Krantzberg has more than three decades of experience in environmental science and freshwater management. Her extensive list of appointments and achievements surrounding Great Lakes governance is impressive; her background with the Ministry of the Environment and the Great Lakes Regional Office of the International Joint Commission have positioned Krantzberg as a core contributor to the protection of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River basin. "It is a real honour to be invited to the Council," Krantzberg says of the council "It is really exciting to be at a table where Great Lakes ministers, First Nations and Métis representatives, as well as municipal politicians, will not only look at the challenges and concerns, but at how to prioritize opportunities for action and inspire people to see themselves as fundamentally connected to this ecosystem." Krantzberg admits the common approach for environmental task groups is to say, "We've been addressing these problems, but there's more work to be done. Once everyone was seated, Dr. Gail Krantzberg and Dr. Harvey Shear began discussing the Great Lakes from different perspectives - one speaking about the big picture and the other speaking about how individuals can begin to understand how their activities and actions effect the lakes. Krantzberg, a McMaster engineering professor and director of the University's Centre for Engineering and Public Policy, has joined forces with a brand new federal initiative committed to environmental conservation and awareness, Women for Nature. The initiative was conceived by Nature Canada to help unite the leadership, knowledge and passion of women with an interest in nature conservation. Women for Nature currently boasts more than 50 members, including researchers, teachers, artists, politicians and environmental activists from across the country. Krantzberg is currently the only member from McMaster, but hopes the national network will grow to include other members of the University community. "People want to get involved and make a difference when it comes to the environment, but they don't always know where to start. I had a number of wonderful mentors when I was growing up, and I want to help pass the torch to a whole new generation," she explained. Examining the chemical industry's efforts to address sustainability through its "Responsible Care®" initiative is the focus of a new book co-edited by Gail Krantzberg, director of the Master of Engineering and Public Policy program in the W Booth School of Engineering Practice at McMaster University, and Peter Topalovic, a program graduate now working as Project Manager of Transportation Demand Management with the City of Hamilton. "This book was written both as a teaching aid for university curriculum and to serve as a practical tool to industrial management and staff for improving sustainable industrial policies," explains Krantzberg. Krantzberg is a member of Responsible Care's National Advisory Panel.
