The entire Greater Golden Horseshoe region is being affected by a combination of climate change and population growth. It is now commonly accepted that current climatic changes and extreme weather impacts are just the beginning. The Greenbelt Foundation partnered with experts to better understand how climate change is affecting many aspects of our lives, and ways that we can individually and collectively respond to these challenges.
Their articles highlight how the Greenbelt supports climate action in a number of important and interconnected ways that affect our daily lives. It is important for people to understand that they have a relationship with the Greenbelt, and it’s not just a one-way street! It will help us and our communities adapt to climate change, but it is important we help it do the same.
Scientific evidence suggests that biodiversity is in decline across the globe, and that one of the drivers of this phenomenon is climate change.
For this instalment in the series, Antonia Guidotti, Mary Burridge, and Mark Peck of the Royal Ontario Museum explore how a changing climate is impacting biodiversity, and what we can do about it.
