Climate Change Nova Scotia:
Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions or the distribution of events around that average (e.g., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change may be limited to a specific region or may occur across the whole Earth.
Facts on climate:
- changing ocean temperatures will change the geographic distribution of fish stocks - affecting Atlantic Canada's fishing industry.
- Sable Island is extremely vulnerable - to rising sea levels.
- Rates of erosion can reach 10 meters per year in Atlantic Canada.
- Contraction of the Arctic ice cap is accelerating climate change - the earth loses its protective cooling layer, absorbs more sunlight and gets hotter.
- Hurricane Juan impacted Halifax to a much more severe degree than normal - warmer southern waters were a source of energy for the storm.
- recycle waste products
- reduce energy costs in homes with energy efficient windows and doors and adequately insulate the home
- use energy efficient transportation (ie: electric automobiles / public transport)
- reduce the usage of electricity in the home (take advantage of government programs)
- use clean energy sources
