Manitoba and Climate Change: A Primer
Climate change is the most significant global environment threat facing Manitobans.
Understanding its impacts and developing a thoughtful response to this very real challenge is critical if we want to ensure an acceptable quality of life for future generations of Manitobans. Climate change represents the concrete manifestation of sustainable development in many ways--an effective response calls for policy and action across the full range of human economic development activities.
By the end of this century, Manitoba will be 4-6 degrees C warmer, on average, than it is today. Manitoba is sensitive and vulnerable to climate change because of the important role that renewable resources like forests and agriculture play in our economy. Change of this magnitude would impact our economy, ecology and health and well-being.
