The extensive literature available on climate change impacts indicates that the Mississippi Valley has and will continue to be affected in many ways, both directly and indirectly by climate change. Published research expects southern Ontario to warm by 3.5°C or more by the year 2050. While warmer temperatures, particularly in the dead of winter may not register as a significant concern, these shifts in average annual conditions will be accompanied by changes in climate variability and the frequency of extreme weather and climate events. Adapting and responding to these changes will present both challenges and opportunities.
Establishing effective dialogue at the local level will be important as the impact of changes in our climate will affect all sectors of society and the response by one sector can have significant implications for other sectors.
