Since 1948, annual average temperatures increased in Canada by approximately 3 degrees, twice as fast than in the rest of the world.
The average temperatures have significantly rosen in all Canadian regions and the oceans sorrounding the country, according to a report published by the Canadian Government.
The north of the country is the most affected region, temperatures rose by 4 degrees in the last 60 years.
In the future, global warming will continue and temperatures will be each year more extreme, what could lead to some catastrophic consequences.
“Global warming is real and Canadians are feeling its consequences. We have to act now,” said Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna.
