Barry Saxifrage

Barry Saxifrage is Canada’s National Observer’s resident chart geek and climate analyst. In his visual carbon columns, Saxifrage deconstructs the data behind global warming and Canada’s climate targets, as he charts international progress and graphically documents failures by industry and governments. His work is cited frequently by academics and climate publications internationally, including by George Monbiot in The Guardian, Yale Climate Connections, Bill McKibben’s New Yorker newsletter, The Times Colonist, and many others. When he’s not analyzing the corporate reports of major oil companies or comparing Canada’s government’s promises against Canada’s actual emissions, Saxifrage is an avid soccer player.
