Hour Three Of Climate Reality: Victoria, British Columbia

After Mexico City and Boulder, the Climate Reality Project’s 24 Hours of Reality continues in the capital of British Columbia, Victoria, Canada. On Vancouver Island, where Victoria is located, the average low winter temperature has increased about 1.5°C in just 13 years. In British Columbia’s interior, the mountain pine beetle has already damaged an area more than twice the size of New Brunswick. Meanwhile, Alberta’s tar sands deposits are poised to become the next man-made carbon bomb, if Canada’s conservative government and oil companies have their way. Presented by Peter Schiefke, co-founder of Youth Action Montreal.
