Hello, my name is Laurent Cousineau and I am the founder of the Climate Change Guide.
I have always lived in Montreal, Canada.
For several years now, I have been passionate about climate change and my website is my way of trying to build a better future.
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.
In sum, I have built this website as a means to raise awareness on this issue and to build a community on climate change.
I have received a great deal of positive messages from:
In fact, I've been contacted by people from many countries around the world and have received much support. You can see some of these comments at the end of my home page on Climate Change Guide.
I am currently a student in Computer Science and Business at Concordia University in Montreal.
I graduated from Marianopolis College in Health Science and have graduated from Loyola High School with First Honours.
I have taken a course in Web Design in College, and started this website in August 2011.
I received a big and unique entrance scholarship for academic excellence when I entered Concordia University.
Also, I was featured in an alumni magazine for Marianopolis College, in AlmaMatters Winter 2013 (I'm mentioned in the second-to-last page).
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 until recently.
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.
In addition to my passion for climate change and web design, I have several YouTube channels:
These videos cover a great variety of topics such as environmental issues, art, gameplay videos and landscape slide shows.
Recently, I have hit an incredible milestone: I have now over 1 million total YouTube views across my three YouTube channels.
Moreover, I love meeting new people and connecting with environmentalists from around the world.
The Climate Change Guide's goal is to provide you with all pertinent information about climate change.
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.
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.
The time for procrastination has long been due.
Now is the time to build a more sustainable future for all.
Have your say about what you just read!
Please, leave a comment below. I started my website over a year ago and will do my best to improve it for you, my visitors. Truly, I would love to hear from you and I strongly appreciate any feedback :)
Sincerely, Laurent Cousineau
Founder of Climate-Change-Guide.com
My site now receives hundreds of visitors a day from over 160 countries, and I want to thank each and every one of you.
Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can help build a better future.
