Opponents to the proposed Peace River Site-C dam have found another argument to back their position.

They’re siting the findings of BC’s Peace River Valley and Climate Change Report, to suggest global warming as an added reason to oppose dam construction.

The report notes that in contrast to most of the province, the Peace River Valley’s agriculturl capacity is expected to be enhanced, by climate change.

It says Northeastern B.C. will benefit from warmer temperatures and more precipitation extending the agricultural growing season.

Thus it says, the valuable agricultural land which would be flooded by the dam construction would have enormous potential to increase BC’s food self-reliance.

A full copy of the report, and others associated with it can be found online at www.itsourvalley.ca.
