David Suzuki Foundation: Global Warming Can Be Curbed In Canada


OTTAWA - The David Suzuki Foundation says the latest international report on climate change confirms that global warming is amplified in Canada and the trend is going to continue.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, released today in its entirety, confirms the planet is heating up and that it's extremely likely that human activities are to blame.

The Suzuki foundation, however, says the additional details from the report released today also show that climate change hits harder in northern countries such as Canada.

The foundation says Canada has experienced double the average global temperature increase during the last century.

It also says the report shows it's not too late to cut carbon emissions and avert the worst effects of global warming.

The Harper government greeted the report by saying it's already acting to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
