Climate Change Infographics

Climate change affects so much more than just ice caps — it touches everything from our beautiful natural landscapes and rich wildlife, to complex industrial processes and urban infrastructure. The changes that are wrought on Canada’s environment ripple out to every living organism. The following infographics, based on two reports from Natural Resources Canada, offer a way to unravel the complex issue of climate change.

Download these six infographics to introduce students to the main features of climate change and its effects on the environment, exploring problems such as melting permafrost and ocean acidification. Encourage students to examine the various threats climate change poses to biodiversity, like habitat destruction and foreign pest outbreaks. You can even use the infographics as a jumping-off point to learn about how climate change impacts Canada’s economy and the health of Canadians.

Climate change is already here, but that doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do about it. With your students, you can use the Adaptation and Mitigation infographic to discuss ways to reduce your carbon footprint and adopt new habits and strategies to adjust to a changing climate.
