We want to tell everyone about climate change; what it is, the impacts, and what we can do. Let’s talk with the community and tell them about this amazing new website that is connecting information, actions, and stories to inspire climate engagement in the Thunder Bay region.
Check out the MASSIVE amounts of unused space on the edge of Memorial avenue. I’m terrified to cycle on Memorial avenue, especially with my son in tow and so we avoid shopping or visiting here during the warmer months. I also see countless people cycling illegally on the sidewalks and edges of Memorial. Let’s turn this useless space into a beautiful protected cycling path to encourage the whole community to visit this area safely.
A changing climate means that certain things that I enjoy about life in Thunder Bay will be seriously altered. Our quality of life is vulnerable, and that makes climate change an urgent issue. Increasing periods of drought and frequency of extreme heat events may leave our forests and grasslands dry and fire prone. Thunder Bay and area has already experienced periods of fire bans and burn permit suspensions. Without action for climate change mitigation, our campfires and backyard fire pits may become a thing of the past.
As a teacher, the need to educate younger generations on climate change is important and evident. The lack of knowledge and understanding about the effects of our actions on the planet has resulted in movements such as the one pictured here, found on Lakehead University campus.
