EnviroStats

Statistics Canada has released a new report called EnviroStats with the help of Environment Canada. According to their research there has been "an increase in mean temperature of 1.4 C over the 62 years in the record." They're even broken it down based on regions. Not surprising, it is Canada's North that has seen the largest increase in temperature. Here is a sample:

Mean temperature departures from 1961 to 1990 normal and linear trend, Canada

Mean temperature departures from 1961 to 1990 normal and linear trend, BC

Mean temperature departures from 1961 to 1990 normal and linear trend, North
Also the same report notes that in 2009, 63.1% of our total electrical generation came from Hydro-electric, 14.8% from nuclear, and 22.1% from fossil fuel and other fuel combustion. Between 2004 and 2009, Canada saw a 4.3% reduction in the use of fossil fuel for electrical generation. In that same time period there was a 1.2% reduction in GHG emission.

Check out the Spring 2011 EnviroStats for a more detailed look at some of the stats that I outlined.
