Global National: Jan. 13, 2022 | Climate reports find 2021 to be 6th hottest year on record

Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Jan. 13, 2022 | Climate reports find 2021 to be 6th hottest year on record” – below is their description.

After a year filled with climate disasters, NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have determined 2021 was Earth’s sixth hottest year on record. As Jackson Proskow reports, rising temperatures are fuelling increased calls for immediate and drastic action.

Meanwhile, after wildfires obliterated the Kanaka Bar Indian Band in British Columbia, it is preparing to rebuild. And as Heather Yourex-West reports, the Indigenous community is teaming up with Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) researchers to create homes that can withstand fires, floods and storms.

To the COVID-19 pandemic, provinces are working to immunize younger Canadians against COVID-19, but vaccination rates are slowing among children aged five to 11. Jamie Mauracher explains why some parents are hesitating.

The federal government is correcting erroneous information released and says border-crossing Canadian truck drivers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Abigail Bimman explains what this means for truckers who are not immunized and the potential impact on the already struggling supply chain.

Privacy concerns are being raised about the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) buying the location data of Canadian cellphone users. The agency said it wanted to analyze the movement of people during the pandemic. As Mike Le Couteur reports, there are questions about how that data is collected and whether Canadians even knew about it.

Plus, after a failed attempt to dismiss Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s civil lawsuit accusing him of sexual abuse, disgraced royal Prince Andrew has now lost his royal patronages and military titles. Crystal Goomansingh reports on how Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of York’s mother, has been pressured to take action and how the public is responding.

And Prince Edward Island farmers are still feeling the squeeze after the U.S. banned their potato exports because of potato warts. But a Quebec man named Mac Watson has chipped in to help, buying 27,000 kilograms of spuds. Mike Armstrong explains how Watson is trying to solve two problems at once.
