The World Will be Fundamentally Different

January 13, 2011

A climate change model that projects a view of the world a thousand years from now, based on current greenhouse gas emission levels maintained for the next hundred years, shows a fundamentally different world than what we see today. Most coral reefs will have disappeared along with famed ski hills, and oceans will have risen 4 metres, sinking entire coastlines. The model is a joint project between the Universities of Calgary and Victoria and Environment Canada. Read story in the Montreal Gazette here.
