Earth Day Forum: April 22,

“Everything you wanted to know and were afraid to ask about the Science, Politics and Economic impacts of Climate Change”

Find out about environmentally-responsible investing that is both profitable and can help to mitigate climate change!

On April 22, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, a special Climate Change forum will be held in downtown Sidney: Everything you wanted to know and were afraid to ask about the Science, Politics and Economic Impacts of Climate Change. Why all the controversy and media hype? Is this something that I should be concerned about now or later? Will it affect me and the well being of my family? Who do I believe? How will it affect my retirement investments? What should I do? These are just a few of the questions that will be discussed by respected leaders from a range of perspectives.

Featured speakers include:

Andrew Weaver – Professor at the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Victoria; member of the International Panel of Climate Change (a co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize); and, author of the 2008 book “Keeping our Cool, Canada in a Warming World”.

Elizabeth May – Leader of the Federal Green Party and author of the popular 2009 book “Global Warming for Dummies”.

Frank Arnold – Head of the Victoria-based Pinch Group, a member firm of Raymond James Ltd. Investments, who specialize in Socially Responsible Investing (SRI).

Andrew Weaver will give an overview of our current scientific understanding of the changes occurring to the Earth’s climate and what we know has already happened to our terrestrial and ocean ecosystems. He will also outline what scientists think may be plausible scenarios for future effects and what kinds of solutions are being considered or proposed.

Elizabeth May will give a brief history on what Canada and other world nations are doing or not doing in response to these issues. She will also summarize what went disappointedly wrong at the recent Copenhagen Climate Summit in December 2009, what its outcome means and where we should be going next.

Frank Arnold will discuss how climate change and its effects can affect business strategies and investments. He will also describe the benefits and risks of socially responsible investing that can make for investments that are both profitable and helpful to mitigate climate change at the same time.

The location is Mary Winspear Centre, Activity Room #2 (http://www.marywinspear.ca). The time is 7:00-8:30pm Thursday April 22nd. The event is being organized by Eco Cell at St. Johns, a local peninsula-based organization focused on community, environmental and social justice issues. Attendance is free but seating is limited so get there early if possible. Enquiries call (250) 665-6314 or email to ecocellatstjohns@gmail.com .

Free cookies and refreshments.

    Benefits Of The Card
    The card enables you to earn one mile for spending one dollar. Moreover, the first purchase that you make with your card will give you 15000 bonus miles. The Citi® Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard also offers you various platinum card benefits including the access to the reduced mileage awards.
    Though the rates of interest and the annual fee of $85 are above average, the card lets you save money with the free reward flights, provided you can pay the full monthly balance. (The first year is fee-free). There is a cap on the cash advances and the interest rate will never go below the minimum cap.
    You will find that this card has great rewards on offer for both the business and the pleasure traveler.
    Other Benefits
    On making purchases worth a minimum of $250, the cardholder will get 20000 American Airline AAdvantage bonus miles and thereafter he/she will receive one mile for spending one dollar on purchases.
    The earned miles can be redeemed at any point of time, as there are no blackout dates available on select Airlines like American Eagle, American Airlines and AmericanConnection carriers, as long as the account is operated for at least once in three years. Furthermore, the reduced mileage awards enable your miles to go further.
    The credit card does not have any pre-set spending limit and therefore allows you to spend as much as you require. Platinum facilities of the card such as, retail purchase protection, travel accident insurance, extended warranty services, lost luggage coverage and damage insurance or car rental collision loss gives you the chance to shop confidently.
    Other than redeeming fly miles with more than 25 airlines, the Citi® Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard also can be redeemable with car rental companies and at many luxurious hotels all over the world.
    For purchasing an airfare of $299 or more using your Citi Platinum Select, you can conveniently obtain a companion certificate for free. This permits your friend or business partner a free travel.
    Moreover, the card entitles you to personal concierge services to effectively manage your hectic schedule. These services can be favorably availed via the telephone or online.
    If you do not want to spend over $100000 on the card per year and can afford to make full payments every month, you can opt for the Citi® Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard.
    The Bonus Points
    Quite like the other credit cards, the Citi® Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard also offers a financial statement at the end of the year, legal and medical referral services, emergency card and cash replacement and many Internet account related services.
    The card provides identity theft solutions, lost as well as stolen card reporting and other benefits for the convenience of the cardholder.
