WEATHER GONE WILD explores recent extreme weather events and the scientific projections of what we can expect over the next few decades: wild weather is going to become more common, and even wilder and more destructive. What we can we do to protect ourselves, our families, and the towns and cities where we live?
As Blair Feltmate, University of Waterloo professor and Chair of Canada's Climate Change Adaptation Project says, “It’s mission critical for the country. We have to weather-harden the system. Climate change will continue to happen. We need to figure out, what are we going to do about it?”
WEATHER GONE WILD answers that question with a number of practical steps Canadians can take to prepare themselves for destructive weather. Even conservative estimates show that for every dollar spent now on weather adaptation, six will be saved when damaging storms do strike.
