Read this story from The Tyee on a new report from the Adaption to Climate Change Team at SFU, urging drastic water conservation reforms in BC.
“The report outlines a new national proposition on water that aims to
strengthen Canada’s economy and ensure its environmental
sustainability, while at the same time enhancing our nation’s adaptive
capacity in the face of growing climate change effects…We are beginning to experience deeper and more
persistent droughts, and these are very costly. We’re also
beginning to experience the same intense rainfall and flooding events
that are becoming more common widely elsewhere in the world.”(October 5, 2011)
