This map is intended for the purposes of illustration and discussion only. It shows one of a range of possible future projections of Ontario's climate. Predictions of future climate may vary from those shown here due to uncertainty in the rate of global release of greenhouse gases due to human activity, unknown or inaccurately quantified feedback responses releasing/absorbing greenhouse gases from land and water ecosystems, and shortcomings associated with climate modelling. Do not rely on this map for legal administrative purposes. This map may contain cartographic errors or omissions.
