About Me and the Climate Change Guide

Hello, my name is Laurent Cousineau and I am the founder of the Climate Change Guide.

For several years now, I have been passionate about climate change and my website is my way of trying to build a better future.

In addition, in summer 2013 I was trained by Al Gore in Chicago and I am officially a Climate Leader at the Climate Reality Project.

Climate change is the most important issue of our time and one in which we cannot ignore for there are millions of lives at stake.

To request a presentation, go to the Climate Reality Website and under "Preferred Leader" type in Laurent Cousineau

In sum, I have built this website as a means to raise awareness on this issue and to build a community on climate change.

The site began in August 20, 2011 and has changed drastically since its inception. It now receives over 2500 daily visitors and the site's Facebook Page has reached over 190,000 likes.

Positive Feedback

I have received a great deal of positive messages from:

  • environmentalists
  • climate change educators
  • students
  • teachers
  • photographers who have been to Antarctica
  • and even scientists.

In fact, I've been contacted by people from many countries around the world and have received much support. You can see some of their comments at the end of my home page on Climate Change Guide.

My Facebook Page

Other Websites

In early 2010, I have created my first site which is still online today.

Later that year, I have co-founded CMLeukemia.com with my dad. This website receives over a thousand visitors each day.

In fact, it has been recommended by doctors to chronic myeloid leukemia patients around the world.

My dad had leukemia since 2004, and it has been quite an arduous journey to say the least. For a long time, I had rarely told anyone.

We all had our hardships and it is important that we are not afraid to discuss it with others. Since I've talked openly about it, people I knew revealed to me how they had someone in their family fighting cancer.

Sometimes it is good to just know that we are not alone in this world. Also, just talking about it helps as well.

Why The Climate Change Guide?

The Climate Change Guide's goal is to provide you with all pertinent information about climate change.

I want to supply you with the best information about the causes and effects of climate change. Moreover, I will provide you with several ways to help solve the climate crisis.

Climate change is not a trivial issue. On the contrary, climate change will affect all of mankind and is taking millions of lives on a yearly basis.

By 2030, over 100 million people will die because of climate change if we do not take sufficient action.

We need to act together and we need to act now.

People's lives are at stake and humanity's mere ability to survive is in question.

The reality is that the planet will not be affected. In effect, the planet has a great way of regulating itself over time even though it may take hundreds of millions of years.

However, every species on this planet will be strongly affected and millions could go extinct by 2050.

What Now?

All these questions and many more will be answered on this site.

Moreover, this website will provide you with the climate change news that you ought to know.

Also, the site's glossary will explain important terms related to climate change, and the FAQ will answer frequently asked questions.

Finally, this website will supply you with many resources to help reduce your carbon footprint and stop global warming through alternative energy along with various other methods.

The time for procrastination has long been due.

Now is the time to build a more sustainable future for all.
