since 2017, we are actively trying to bring awareness to ENVIRONMENTAL issues that matter to the lives of windsorites .
Twenty decades of research, cumulatively assessed in a 2013 survey of over 4000 academic papers, found that there is 97% consensus: humans are causing climate change. Yet it is still a topic of debate. It is of little relief when a nearby global power calls climate change a Chinese hoax, removes itself from the Paris Agreement, and makes a well-known climate change denier the head of his EPA transition team. Such actions threaten Earth at a global and local scale, making it imperative that we play our part in fighting catastrophic consequences of political meringue.
The City of Windsor is not immune to climate change.
The City of Windsor created a Climate Change Adaptation Plan in September 2012, citing that the city had undergone an average temperature increase of 1 degree C since 1940. In comparison, ongoing NASA analysis estimates a 0.8 degree C temperature increase on Earth since 1880.
"Hot" days in Windsor ( >30 C/ 86 F) could quadruple by 2071, heightening levels of heat-related illnesses. Natural disasters could continue their increased frequency all over Ontario. These are changes that would affect our front yards. These are personal penalties.
Communities can become stalwarts for initiating environmental-friendly action.
Climate change demands urgent attention; from you, from me, from US.
We know that expositions do little to affect action. This is why our aims are:
- to help Windsor use simple yet effective strategies to reduce our carbon footprint
- to spread awareness of how small changes in our daily lifestyle can have long-lasting positive environmental effects
What We PROVIDE
