The climate of Canada, especially in the Arctic, is warming at an incredible rate thought to be at least twice the rate of the rest of the world. Furthermore, the report suggests that many of the problems facing Canada’s climate are probably irreversible.
This latest Global Warming report comes just after the Federal Government of Canada, imposed strict carbon taxes on four of Canada’s provinces, who have so far, have not implemented their plan for tackling Climate Change and Global Warming.
Along with rising temperatures, (Canada’s temperatures has increased by 1.7C since records commenced in 1948). Most affected it would appear the Arctic Ocean where they predict extensive ice-free periods, within a couple of decades.
The report goes onto explain that with rising temperatures comes rising sea levels, which when coupled with more intense rainstorms, will increase the risk of flooding for both coastal and urban areas causing major flooding, flooding which has already been felt in many parts of Canada.
Although the average temperature increase for Canada is said to be at least +1.7c the Northern parts of Canada are facing even more significant challenges, both the Northern Prairies and British Columbia have seen their temperatures increase by a staggering 2.3C and will continue to do so unless drastic changes are actioned by the said provinces and the Federal Government.
Authors note: While mother nature herself has contributed to these extraordinary events it has to be said, that human activities, have and will continue to have, a direct impact on everyone's lives not only in Canada but Globally.
