2022-10-25 If you lived in a flood-prone area that flooded several times in the past ten years, how would you react at the possibility of relocating on higher ground with government buyout money?
How would you react if you received a home buyout flier reminding you that “Funding is limited, and applications will be processed in the order they are received.”?
Emotions run high as shown in this in-depth article about repetitive flooding in Horry County, South Carolina, USA.
The IPCC (Intergovernmental panel on climate change) was created in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). IPCC provides governments at all levels (federal, state, province, cities) with scientific information they can use to develop climate policies.
The sixth assessment report (AR6) will be released in 2021. Information on the outline of the report and the proposed timeline are available on the IPCC website.
In April 2016 at Nairobi, Kenya, the IPCC agreed to produce a special report on the ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate. The summary for policy makers, together with the supporting technical summary and chapters of the full report were approved at the 51st session of the IPCC in Monaco, September 20-24, 2019. I was a member of the Canadian Government delegation at this meeting, providing scientific support on matters pertaining to the oceans.
In the fifth assessment report (AR5), world experts from Working Group 1 summarized our collective state of knowledge and uncertainties in relation to climate change science.
I was one of the seven members of the Canadian delegation at the 51st IPCC plenary approval session of SROCC (Special Report on the ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate). My role was to provide scientific support on matters pertaining to the oceans.

I was one of the members of the Canadian delegation at the 54th IPCC plenary approval session of AR6 WG1's report on the physical basis of climate change. This session took place on Zoom July 26 to August 6, 2021.
In this 13-minute interview with Markham Hislop of Energi Media, I discuss how ocean warming and the melting of mountain glaciers and the Greenland and Antarctica ice sheets contribute to global sea level rise. According to the IPCC Special Report on The Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing Climate, what were centennial (once per century) extreme high sea level events in the recent past will become annual (once per year) events around 2050 for most coastal locations around the world.
On April 2, 2019, the federal Government of Canada published the 2019 version of Canada's Changing Climate Report. I co-authored Chapter 7 of this report about the Changes in Oceans surrounding Canada. In this Chapter, we discuss changes observed in the past and projected changes in the future for the ocean's salinity, temperature, currents, sea level, acidity and dissolved oxygen.
