When Climate Change Hits Home
Prince Edward Island resident Gilbert Sark sees the impact of climate change everyday from his home on Lennox Island, which is under threat due to erosion and rising sea levels. Floods, wildfires, and heat waves torment other parts of Canada. As a response to climate concerns, the House of Commons passed a motion declaring a national climate emergency.
Host Tamara Khandaker speaks with Lennox Island resident Gilbert Sark about how his home has been transformed by climate change. Also, Simon Donner, professor of climatology at the University of British Columbia, speaks to the urgency of climate issues in Canada.
