    Description:

    Over the past few decades, the fight against pollution of the environment has gone from the fringe to being fashionable to being controversial and, perhaps, even considered to be life threatening. A great debate now rages worldwide with regards to human-generated greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and their impact on the environment.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    For millennia, changes in the earth's atmosphere were the result of natural forces. Over the past century, however, these changes have escalated as a result of human activities-mainly unprecedented growth in global population and consumption of natural resources to increase industrial production-that degrade and destroy the forests and other vital ecosystems essential to atmospheric processes. Such human activities produce large quantities of substances that are released in the air, where over time they can overload natural processes and eventually reach harmful levels. The result is poor air quality in urban and rural areas around the world.

    This article addresses the following questions: What is the condition of our outdoor and indoor air? What effects does air quality have on our health and our environment? And what are governments and businesses doing to address air quality concerns?

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5081
    Description: The survey collects, analyses and publishes information on industrial greenhouse gas emissions to support Canada's national and international reporting obligations and the public interest as it relates to climate change and the environment.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5127
    Description: The air quality indicators reflect the potential for long term exposure of Canadians to ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter (PM2.5), key components of smog and two of the most common and harmful air pollutants to which people are exposed. Both the ozone and PM2.5 indicators are population weighted estimates of average concentrations of these pollutants observed by monitoring stations across Canada. Statistics Canada calculates the indicators based on monitoring data provided by Environment Canada's National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) network.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5129
    Description: The greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions indicator reports the trend in human made greenhouse gas emissions at a national, provincial/territorial, and sectoral level for six greenhouse gases in Canada: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride, perfluorocarbons, and hydrofluorocarbons.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 7531
