Climate change is amplified in Canada

Canada has experienced about double the average global temperature increase during the past century. Climate change, including temperature increases, tends to be amplified in Canada because we’re a northern country and global warming is magnified at or near the North and South Poles. This intensification in temperature increase near the poles is largely the result of the loss of ice and snow cover.

The IPCC report has information for Canada by region on temperature increases, precipitation trends, drought possibility, snow cover and more.
