Hellooo geographers! I swear the millions of emails will stop soon, but there are just too
many great things going on right now.. read on!

i) Annual GEOGRAPHY WINE & CHEESE is happening THIS TUESDAY Jan 25th!!! Starting at 5:15 and
and ending at 7:15 we will be in the Arts Building in room 160. This is a great opportunity
to get to know both your fellow geographers and your profs! Don't miss what is always a great
event- and what's better than wine, cheese, and geographers?? NOTHING. So be there.

ii) THIS WEEK is McGill's 'Academia Week' (http://www.sus.mcgill.ca/), an annual week-long series of
lectures, seminars and workshops intended to help McGill students from all years and backgrounds
to learn about current research and issues in science.
This year features a lecture by Dr. David Hughes, president of Global Sustainability Research Inc.
Wednesday Jan. 26 at 6pm in Leacock 26. Dr. Hughes will be focusing on the issue of non-renewable
resources and what changes have to be made in order to create a sustainable energy future. He will
discuss the global peak of production of fuels and the tremendous impact it will have on our modern
way of life if we do not move toward more sustainable levels of consumption. All are welcome!
