Take Action on Climate Change

PEI: Life on a Shrinking Island - Prince Edward Island is slowly disappearing into the ocean, in large part due to climate-change-related sea level rise and powerful storm surges which are increasing erosion of the island’s soft sandstone base. Tides have become noticeably different and have destroyed infrastructure including lighthouses, bridges, wharfs, streets, boardwalks, water wells, and sewer lines.

This film, produced by Climate Atlas of Canada, aims to take the global knowledge of climate change and bring it down to a local scale, with case studies including both PEI's north and south shores as well as interviews with local fishers and residents.

Climate change is here and, if anyone doesn’t believe it, just get up and look out the window”. - Local resident
