MGI Blue Feature - Kingston’s Race to Climate Departure

The term “climate departure” marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to enter  into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm. A city hits climate departure when the average temperature of its coolest year from then on is projected to be warmer than the average temperature of its hottest year between 1960 and 2005. The world’s current climate departure cycle is induced by increasing temperatures from global warming. This has caused ice sheets to melt which have resulted in, among other anomalies, sea level rise and furthermore threatening popular coastlines such as: the Kingston Harbour. The rising sea level along the harbour will eventually lead to the destruction of the various industries, including the international air and shipping ports, if steps are not taken to rectify the arising issues.
