Learn About Climate Change
APEGGA's Environment Committee monitors environmental trends and assists
in keeping the association membership aware of relevant issues. Among
those issues is, of course, climate change.
Unusual weather patterns are being observed around the world. Concerns
also continue over energy issues. Events such as the Joint Meeting of
Energy and Environment Ministers last October and the World Conference
on Climate Change held in the Hague last November also emphasize that
the issue of climate change remains an area of high interest and active
research and development.
A wealth of information has been compiled on the subject and is continuously
being updated to reflect new findings. Much of this information is publicly
available through various media, including websites maintained by governments
and other agencies. Of special relevance may be the Alberta Climate Change
Central website, as it tries to reflect broad stakeholder and government
response to the issue.
For the benefit of members who are looking for a place to start exploring
the field, the Environment Committee has identified the following list
of websites. Please note that the mention of a site does not imply its
endorsement by APEGGA.
