You Are Here

Carbon emissions and temperature rise are intimately linked. This quilt illustrates the average annual temperature in BC during a 100 year period. The “you are here” marker represents the present. Continuing to release high carbon emissions into our atmosphere will result in an alarming rise in temperature (upper right). Lowering our carbon emissions will slow this significantly (lower right). Which road do you want to take?  *Design is an interpretation of “Warming Stripes”, designed by Ed Hawkins, Climate scientist, National Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Reading.
