New Report Reveals Extreme Weather the New Normal

A new climate change study, Canada's Changing Climate Report (CCCR), released by the Canadian government confirms that significant environmental changes are leaving visible impacts - heavy rainstorms are triggering catastrophic flooding, summer heatwaves are becoming longer and hotter and extreme weather events are occurring more frequently.

The findings of the new report come from a comprehensive review of scientific studies that analyze the environmental crisis we are currently facing and how climate change will progress in the future depending on global carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon dioxide emissions are projected to rise throughout this century and scientists confirm that the increase in damaging extreme weather events is becoming the new normal for Canadian weather.
