Climate change is the defining issue of our times. It provides the context and motivation for our work.
Nature needs time and space to adapt as climate change disrupts species and ecosystems. We work to protect B.C.’s forests, watersheds and at-risk species to prepare for climatic shifts already underway. Read more about our campaigns in the Flathead River Valley, the Great Bear Rainforest, and Vancouver Island and the south coast.
Agriculture and food security
Climate change also threatens our agricultural production and the feasibility of relying on global food distribution. Read more about our campaign to protect Peace River Valley agricultural land threatened by Site C.
Many current agricultural practices, especially industrial livestock operations, are a significant contributor to climate change. Sierra Club BC supports a shift toward local and regional food production, reducing our reliance on meat in the diet, and regenerative farming practices. Learn more here.
Stabilizing our climate
The science tells us that, to have any chance of keeping global warming below 2⁰C, 80 per cent of the world’s fossil fuels must stay in the ground.
We work to support both government and B.C. communities to take meaningful climate action. Read more about our climate solutions campaigning.
