Climate change warnings will be placed on fuel pumps under a new law in the City of Vancouver, Canada.

The design will be a combination of linking the use of fossil fuels and climate change alongside positive alternatives on how to maintain a more efficient vehicle.

The labels will be stuck to either fuel nozzle toppers or pump units at all gas stations located in the city. It is the first of its kind in the country.

They are expected to be at local fuel stations in 2016.

Mayor Darrell Mussatto said: “This initiative demonstrates [the] council’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.

“Almost 50% of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions are created by vehicles.

“By reminding people of the connection between the use of fossil fuels and climate change, while providing fuel efficiency and active transportation tips, these labels will highlight the many ways we can reduce our impact on the environment.”

An underwater energy storage system claimed to be the world’s first has recently been launched in Canada.
