Barrow-Summary-09-01-Climate scenarios for Saskatchewan

The most recent assessment undertaken by the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC,
2007) concluded that “Warming of the climate system
is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of
increases in global average air and ocean temperatures,
widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global
average sea level”. This summary addresses the question of
what projected changes in global average climate mean for
Saskatchewan specifically.
