“Climate change is here and, if anyone doesn’t believe it, just get up and look out the window”* As is the case in Canada’s north, Prince Edward Island is providing striking evidence that the effects of climate change are destructive, costly and currently in play in different parts of the country. In fact there is ample evidence to suggest that PEI is disappearing into the ocean.
If anyone is still looking for proof or for examples of the serious threat posed by our changing climate, this film provides powerful images and first-hand accounts of how residents of Canada’s smallest province are now forced to deal with the impacts of sea level rise and increasingly frequent and more powerful storm surges. In addition to human safety concerns, Islanders are coping with frequent flooding, damage to infrastructure, loss of wildlife habitat and the harm to ground water and wastewater systems from saltwater intrusion.
