Dr. Jordan Golubov first became aware of environmental issues in the mid-1970s when he learned of Greenpeace and its anti-whaling campaign. This made him aware of the fragility and vulnerability of the planet’s natural systems and biodiversity. He maintains a sustainable lifestyle, minimizing consumption, and cycling to his work when weather permits.
Dr. Golubov’s professional and family demands have limited his ability to be more directly involved in environmental work. That’s why he chooses to donate to environmental charities that have the expertise to effect positive change.
“I have chosen to donate shares in companies involved in oil sands extraction due to my ethical objection to the toll this process is taking on climate, water and land and how it has driven federal dismantling of environmental legislation,” he says.
