Dr. Damon Matthews

Concordia University

Since January 2012, Damon, the founder and lead researcher of the Climate Lab at Concordia University, has published 22 scientific articles and 5 Op-Eds related to the science of global warming and its relevance to climate policy.  His most widely read recent research presented a new calculation of how much climate warming each country in the world has caused as a result of their greenhouse gas emissions, concluding that over 60% of historical global warming can be attributed to just 7 countries (BRIC nations plus, US, Germany, and UK), and also shows the range of per capita contributions to global warming – where Canada ranked a shameful 3rd amongst the 20 largest global emitters.
