The Province is doing critical work through CleanBC to reduce our emissions and take action on climate change. But greenhouse gas emissions already in the atmosphere will continue to cause changes over the coming decades. Preparing for climate change is about understanding these changes and developing appropriate measures to respond and be prepared. It’s what we call being “climate-ready”.
From hotter, drier summers and more frequent storms to extended growing seasons and berries ripening earlier, B.C’s climate is already changing. The Province is developing a climate preparedness and adaptation strategy for B.C. that will help to ensure we’re ready for climate change now and into the future.
Question 1: Think about a place that is important to you and your family. What changes have you seen in your favorite places and your community in the last few years? How has this impacted your activities?
