Canada is experiencing warming at twice the global rate, along with increased precipitation and “extreme fire weather,” according to a government report obtained by CBC News. The Environment and Climate Change Department report, titled “Canada’s Changing Climate Report,” reportedly states that the country’s annual average temperature has increased 1.7 celsius since 1948—with Northern Canada’s average annual temperature increasing by 2.3 celsius. According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Earth’s global average temperature has increased by approximately 0.8 celsius since 1948. The CCCR’s report—set to be released on Tuesday—also reportedly concluded the country was experiencing water supply shortages and a greater risk of coastal flooding. Regarding the cause of Canada’s warming, the report concludes that a “dominant” cause is the “human factor”—particularly the admission of greenhouse gasses.
