Introduction

” The Present” explains more recent climate trends. It gives examples of how our society’s production and use of energy – manufacturing things, moving vehicles, producing fertilizers, growing food – is changing the air around us. There is information to help you explore the connection between burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) and climate change. This section gives you the scientific evidence for climate change and the current impacts both globally and here in Ontario. Eg. The relationship between rising global temperatures, more violent weather and increased concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHG).
