Bestselling author and economist Jeff Rubin will be speaking & signing his latest book The Carbon Bubble: What Happens to Us When it Bursts (Random House of Canada). This event hosted by Terry MacLeod of CBC Radio One 89.3 FM/990 AM’s The Weekend Morning Show. For the first time at book length, bestselling author and economist Jeff Rubin addresses Canada’s national economic future–and the financial security of all Canadians.  Rubin argues that there is a lifeline to a better future beyond Harper’s economic vision for the country. The very climate change that will leave much of the country’s carbon unburnable could at the same time make some of Canada’s other resource assets more valuable: our water and our land. In tomorrow’s economy, he argues, Canada won’t be an energy superpower, but it has the makings of one of the world’s great breadbaskets. And in the global climate that the world’s carbon emissions are inexorably creating, food will soon be a lot more valuable than oil.
