“On average, the state of flood preparedness of Canada’s major 16 cities was not materially better or worse over the timeframe 2015 to 2019-20,” said the report, Climate Change and the Preparedness of 16 Major Canadian Cities to Limit Flood Risk.
“On a positive note, Edmonton, Regina, and Toronto scored well in terms of their efforts to limit the impacts of flooding, which could guide and perhaps serve as a model for other cities to emulate their efforts where appropriate.”
The average flood preparedness grade for Canadian cities in 2019-20 was C+, the same as in 2015. Edmonton improved from a C in 2015 to a B+ in 2019-20. Regina improved from a C- to a B+ and Toronto was up from a B- to a B+.
A new study suggests that COVID-19 did not cause people to be less concerned about climate change—in spite of the pandemic disturbing and controlling several aspects of their lives.
The study has discovered that for one year and two months—inclusive of the first three months of the COVID-19 lockdown—neither the worry regarding climate change nor the opinion about the severity of the issue reduced in the United Kingdom.
Scientists took a comparison of the responses to the pandemic with the 2008 economic crisis to gain better insights into how concerns and priorities can vary during a crisis.
