This report has been produced by the Canadian Global Change Program of the Royal Society of Canada to answer some of the basic questions being asked by Canadians about global change issues. It describes the general concepts behind each of the major global problems facing our planet, along with the current best estimates regarding the expected consequences associated with these problems. Examples of global change include global warming, ozone depletion, deforestation and long-range transport of air pollutants. The report then discusses how global change might affect society and how society should attempt to react. Finally, the report suggests how Canadians can respond to global change at the individual, corporate and government level.
