website List Helps You
Learn About Climate Change

APEGGA's Environment Committee monitors environmental trends and assists in keeping the association membership aware of relevant issues. Among those issues is, of course, climate change.

Unusual weather patterns are being observed around the world. Concerns also continue over energy issues. Events such as the Joint Meeting of Energy and Environment Ministers last October and the World Conference on Climate Change held in the Hague last November also emphasize that the issue of climate change remains an area of high interest and active research and development.

A wealth of information has been compiled on the subject and is continuously being updated to reflect new findings. Much of this information is publicly available through various media, including websites maintained by governments and other agencies. Of special relevance may be the Alberta Climate Change Central website, as it tries to reflect broad stakeholder and government response to the issue.

For the benefit of members who are looking for a place to start exploring the field, the Environment Committee has identified the following list of websites. Please note that the mention of a site does not imply its endorsement by APEGGA. (Clean Air Strategic Alliance) (Alberta Government) (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) (Canadian Government) (Pembina Institute) (National Resources Canada's Office of Energy Efficiency) (Climate Change Central)

These sites contain links to other sites and references to numerous publications and other sources of information.
