2018: Climate Change
Grade 9 to Grade 12
Climate change is characterized by an alteration in global or regional climate patterns. It is currently projected that by 2050 average temperatures will rise between 2.5°C-3.7 °C. It is crucial that countries take united action in order to combat the global increase in temperature. If no action is taken, countries across the globe will experience, among others, degraded water supplies, reduced biodiversity, and increased threats to human health as a result of smog and disease intensities.
While climate change does present significant challenges ahead, it also provides an opportunity for innovation and creative problem solving. Canada has the potential to become a world leader in the fight against climate change thanks to the expansion of the global green economy and increasing public interest.
