Canada's climate, climate factors, and physical features
How will climate change effect our country and climate?
Our food supply will be altered with climate change effecting farm areas. more flu's and sicknesses will be discovered and infectious diseases will spread more quickly like malaria. younger kids will have a greater chance of getting asthma. Coastal communities may have to move somewhere else with higher elevation because the sea level will rise due to glaciers melting. There will be a increase of severe weather with dry areas getting less precipitation and wet area getting more precipitation. animals will start to die off and the greenhouse effect will end up getting too hot. Find new ways to put less CO2 in the air and adapt to new climate. build fuel efficient cars and hybrid and electric cars. since we burn fossil fuels we spread nitrogen and because of this trees will put out less oxygen. Be more sustainable with the forest industry by not cutting down entire forests. if we put more windows in houses it will provide more heat so we don't have to use a lot of electronic heating. In the future we will use more renewable resources because it does not create pollution. Climate change will make Canada hotter in some winters so it will be harder to play winter sports such as hockey and skiing.
Canada's Global Connections
Our resources and how to be sustainable
Another important industry to Canada is the mining industry. The mining industry provides a lot of minerals. This industry is important right now and will be even more important in the future because it produces fossil fuels and fossil fuels provided the most energy in the last 20 years. Fossil fuels are also 3rd in production of minerals. In 2001 we exported 80% of our mining production and made $83 billion. This shows even if we export less then 80% of our production we will still make a big profit. It also shows Many counties want fossil fuels because we exported 80% of our production. Minerals are ranked first out of all out of Canada's top 10 export commodities. there are also many negatives to the industry. While mining there is a chance of acid rain, we form sink holes when we mine, and we contaminate our soil and water when we mine. To be more sustainable with this industry we can Adjust to the international competition, explore Canada for more mineral deposits, and do more processing and manufacturing in Canada to make the price of minerals higher. Freshwater and oil will also be important because 97% of out oil goes to America and as the years pass other counties may pollute their fresh water while we still have a good amount.
Issues Canadian Cites is Facing and urban sprawl
One big issue Canadian cites are facing is urban sprawl and it pretty much means the expansion of urban areas without our control. Urban sprawl is affecting us because we all want to live near big urban centers like Toronto. Over 80% of the Canadian population lives in urban locations. As cities grow urban sprawl will also happen and it will affect our quality of life because it will get to crowded, homes will be smaller and cost more because more and more people want a house near an urban city. Commute times to get to work will be longer because most people in urban areas have a car and need to get to work almost every day. Commute times are the longest in the rush hour and the roads are smaller because in the city buildings are bunched up with each other and there may not be enough space to expand roads. Construction work also gets in the way and will make detours and block certain roads which may expand your commute time. Urban sprawl may expand the city but it still cuts into farm land and other locations that are precious green spaces. This is all happening because everyone wants to live in an urban center like Toronto or downtown Mississauga. Everything in a big urban area like Toronto will have higher prices because there are too many people to serve. With mostly everyone having a car in an urban area we produce lots of carbon emissions which will influence climate change.
