"Climate change is no longer theoretical. It’s in our backyard."

CBC News’ recent project about climate change is self described as “ambitious and comprehensive”. The project “In Our Backyard” details how different residents across Canada have been made to cope with the extreme weather events that have costed them more than just dollars; in some cases members of their family, their homes, and their livelihoods. From extreme heat waves, to a rising sea gnawing away at the coastline, the “In Our Backyard” series makes what we know to be true about climate change glaringly real and poignant.
