Canada's Dust Bowl

We call it the "prairies" but before long we may be calling it the "dust bowl."

The Prairie Climate Centre at the University of Winnipeg has just created a prairie climate atlas showing projected warming at several carbon levels over the next several decades.

“Many do not fully appreciate how much the Prairie climate is expected to change,” says climatologist Dr. Danny Blair, the Director of Science for the Prairie Climate Centre and Principal of the University of Winnipeg’s Richardson College for the Environment.

Here's a video of what could lie in store for the agricultural belt and every major city in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Palliser's Triangle on steroids.


Wonder what that 19th century man of science would make of climate change.
