#Canada #Warming Faster Than The Rest Of The World, Says Environment Canada; #ClimateAction

This is why we need #ClimateAction NOW, & a price on pollution is a key part of that. Our kids and grandkids are counting on us.

The report estimates the average annual temperature across Canada has jumped by 1.7 degrees since 1948 — more than twice the global average increase of 0.8 degrees during that time — and that temperatures are expected to keep rising for at least the next two decades, regardless of mitigation efforts.

Canada is warming faster than the world average from human-caused climate change, and global efforts to cut carbon emissions can now only mitigate how much damage is expected to be done.
