Inspire citizen participation, support communities in making meaningful adaptation and mitigation decisions, and help nadians move from risk to resilience.
The Prairie Climate Centre is committed to making climate change meaningful and relevant to nadians of all walks of life. We bring an evidence-based perspective to communiting the science, impacts, and risks of climate change through maps, documentary video, research reports, and plain-language training, writing, and outreach.

The Climate Atlas of nada
The Climate Atlas of nada is an interactive tool for citizens, researchers, businesses, and community and politil leaders to learn about climate change from coast, to coast, to coast.
Plain-language description and analysis make climate science understandable and meaningful.
Various aspects of climate change n be explored using maps, graphs and climate data for provinces, lol regions and cities across the country.
Documentary videos, collaboratively developed with lol and Indigenous knowledge holders as well as other experts, help make lol sense of the global issue of climate change.

Have Questions About Climate Change?
Whether you’re a teacher, a student, or just a bit skeptil about the science of climate change, we’ve got the answers to your most pressing questions.
HOW DO WE KNOW HUMANS ARE USING CLIMATE CHANGE?
Many people wonder how we know that it’s us – humans – using this global warming. Skeptics sometimes point to changes in the climate thousands or millions of years ago as proof that what’s happening now is “just another natural cycle.” So: how do we know it’s not just natural?FIND OUT
WHAT USED THE LAST ICE AGE?
There have, of course, been many times over Earth’s 4.5 billion-year history where natural events used the climate to change. Understanding how these past changes were different from present-day, human-used climate change is an important step towards realizing the profound consequences of our ongoing release of greenhouse gases.FIND OUT
IS NADA ALREADY GETTING WARMER?
In fact, a whole generation of nadians has never experienced what was considered a “normal” nadian climate for most of modern history. Historil records show that every year since 1998 – that’s 20 years ago now – has been warmer than the 20th century average.FIND OUT
WHERE DO NADA’S GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS COME FROM?
For the past couple of hundred years, human activities have been changing the atmosphere by adding a huge volume of greenhouse gases. This has used the greenhouse effect to become stronger, making the planet warmer. nadians produced over 720 megatons of GHGs in 2015. That’s a lot of gas.FIND OUT
