It’s not climate change - it’s EVERYTHING change!
The Climate Atlas of Canada combines climate science, mapping and storytelling to bring the global issue of climate change closer to home for Canadians. It is designed to inspire local, regional, and national action that will let us move from risk to resilience.
Earth is now warmer than it has been for over 10,000 years.
Human activity is causing greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere, and the resulting "greenhouse effect" is trapping more and more heat in the air and oceans. Temperatures are rising, and weather extremes risk becoming the “new normal.”
The climate threat is real, but so are exciting possibilities to find new and creative approaches to living together with health and prosperity within the limits of the natural world.
In order to take meaningful action, we need to understand how climate change works. Learn more about the basic science of climate change, including how we know that it’s happening because of us.
