Climate Change

Page in progress. Thank you for your patience.

This Page will have education content on pollution impact on habitats and species at risk. Pollution includes environmental contaminants with a harmful effect on land, air, and water habitats as well as species communication and health (human and non-human). The main pollution types include noise, air (chemicals), and light pollution.

Please click on the buttons or links to view the content. Although my content has a Canadian focus, it also looks at positive and negative climate change decisions and actions made by other countries.

Climate change and unhealthy wind turbine noise (Noiseletter, Spring 2019, p. 4)

US Quiet Communities Act of 2019 pending federal funding (Noiseletter, Summer 2019, p. 2)

EU Laws requiring noisy electric cars ignore public health guidelines (Noiseletter, Summer 2019, p. 3)

How fireworks can affect your health and the ecosystem (CBC News, Noiseletter, Summer 2019, p. 5)
