New Report Outlines Climate Change Challenges On Canada's Arctic Coast

"Canada's longest — and most northern — coastline will soon have to combat vast challenges such as storms, floods, erosion and melting sea ice in the wake of climate change, according to a Natural Resources Canada report.

Canada's marine coasts in a changing climate offers a glimpse of the harsh environmental impacts of climate change that the country's Arctic coast, and the communities lining it, will have to take into account when planning for the future.

"It's well recognized globally that climate change impacts on the coast will be among the most significant," said Don Lemmen, the report's lead editor."
