  • a landing place for information about our warming climate and the health risks that come with it
  • information designed to reduce your personal danger from heat and its related environmental effects
  • created by concerned medical doctors and healthcare collaborators


As temperatures rise, our health suffers.

Each of the six portals below opens a door to reputable medical resources and climate information. The resources are from government and health agencies, academic sources, and respected scientists. It will be periodically updated.

Being informed allows us to prepare for natural disasters and therefore not just reduce risk, but in many cases prevent it.

Climate Change

2023 was the hottest year in human history, and each month of 2024 has continued to break heat records around the world (time of writing, April 2024).

Preparing for climate change means getting ready for sudden events like wildfires, flooding, and heatwaves, but also planning for water and food shortages and sea level rise.

Northern Canada is warming at double the global rate. Canada will experience more extreme heat, shorter snow and cold seasons, thinning glaciers, thawing permafrost and rising sea levels.

Extreme hot temperatures will become more frequent and intense.

Information on this site includes APPS to track air quality, forest fires, heat maps, floods, severe weather events. It offers tips for safeguarding your home, your family and your pets. It helps identify who is at highest risk, provides emergency action plans, and supplies resources to support your physical and mental health. It leads you to valuable government and public health resources.

The burning of fossil fuels is killing us.

Climate change is the single biggest health threat facing humanity.

Carbon Levels

It is the greenhouse gas called carbon dioxide that is trapping heat in our atmosphere. Since humans began using fossil fuels in the 1800’s our activities have raised C02 by 50%. While carbon emissions will continue to warm Canada’s climate irreversibly, the more we do today to reduce our use of oil and gas and to prepare now for the environmental impacts of global warming, the less suffering there will be.

Carbon levels from the 1700’s to present are represented on the Keeling Curve graph, shown here.
