The Opposition New Democrats and the Alberta Federation of Labour are accusing the government of Premier Jason Kenney of burying a climate-change report that shows the province will warm faster than the rest of the world.

"Projected changes will profoundly impact Alberta's natural environment, and have the potential to affect the province's agriculture, infrastructure and natural resources, as well as the health and welfare of its inhabitants," states Alberta's Climate Future, a report co-authored by Canadian climate scientist Katherine Hayhoe and post-doctoral research fellow Anne Stoner from Texas Tech University.

Alberta Environment released the report earlier this week, without notifying the public, on the government's open portal website, six months after it received the final draft.
