On Thin Ice



Episode Description

Canada is home to over 1 million lakes and one of the largest freshwater supplies in the entire world, but scientists are discovering that these vast freshwater resources, and the ecosystems they support, are increasingly at risk due to the effects of climate change. From changing rainfall patterns, to reduced snowpack, melting mountain glaciers and warming lakes, Canada is more vulnerable to climate change than many of us assume. We are indeed living on thin ice.

  1. Such an amazing series. It should be on prime time. An 88 yr old former Trent U professor and former colleague of Dr David Schindler told me about this series as he is up at that time.
    It is time that we awakened all of Canada … and the world to these issues…
    I have two recommendations:
    1. Air this on prime time
    2. Make it available to those outside Canada on internet
