How Vulnerable is Your Home to Severe Weather?

November 24, 2014 at 10:30 am Leave a comment

Weather Gone Wild explores recent extreme weather events and the scientific projections of what we can expect over the next few decades:  wild weather is going to become more common, and even wilder and more destructive.

  • By the year 2050, Canada can expect a 100% increase in wildfires.
  • By the year 2050, Canada can expect 50% more ice storms, but 50% less snowfall across the prairies, leading to drought.
  • For every degree of temperature rise, the atmosphere can hold an extra 7% of water vapour, which leads to more precipitation and more intense storms.
  • By the year 2050, Canada can expect double the number of storms with heavy precipitation, with periods of drought in between.

What we can we do to protect ourselves, our families, and the towns and cities where we live? Take a few moments to complete this home assessment and get free expert advice HERE>> 


Please join us for the free film:

VOICES OF TRANSITION

How can we feed ourselves in the future? What alternatives are there to industrial agriculture? How can we make the transition to a re-localised, truly resilient economic system? Voices of Transition poses these questions – and presents inspirational answers. An opportunity for discussion will follow the film.
