While Harper dithers, provincial CO2 imbalance problem burns @ Vancouver Observer
“What leaps out immediately is the carbon footprint of people in SK+AB: 50 tonnes of CO2 (tCO2) each. Fifty tonnes. There is no nation even close. The rest of Canadians emit five times less.”
“On one side of the divide are the Harper government’s current policies. They are represented, way up high on the chart, as a black dot. This is where the Harper government says its own climate policies are leading us. Under Harper’s leadership “Canada is set to double our current CO2 increase. This 2020 target already includes CO2 saving from their announced regulations on vehicle efficiency and coal burning power. Stephen Harper is in the driver’s seat and this is where his government says his policies are taking us.
But wait a minute. Down toward the bottom is a green dot. This is where Prime Minister Stephen Harper had promised the world he would lead Canada.”
