Climate Change on the Prairies
Where can you find climate change in Alberta?
Albertans do not experience rising sea levels, tropical storms, wasting ice sheets and sea ice, and extreme heat. These are the impacts of climate change highlighted by the media. The strongest indicator of global climate change is a rise in mean global air temperature, which actually doesn’t exist; it’s a statistical concept. We experience local weather not trends or averages. If the weather becomes unusual, we can suspect climate change. But unusual weather in not uncommon in Alberta, which has amongst the highest climate variability on earth and Canada’s most costly weather events. However, climate change is evident in Alberta if you know where to look.
