… even though the Conservatives tout meeting their (Canada’s) environmental objectives.
DeSmog Canada’s post Canada Massively Fails to Meet Copenhagen Targets, Calls it “Progress” (Leahy: Oct. 26 2013) parses the latest report on Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Canada’s carbon emissions in 2020 will be 20% higher than Harper government’s promised reductions under the 2009 Copenhagen Accord. More importantly, Canada’s emissions will be 66% to 107% higher than what’s actually required to do its share in meeting the 2C global warming target a new Environment Canada report revealed.
That is “significant progress” the report says without irony.
Check out the DeSmog post and the Enviro Canada publication. The larger % numbers reference the 1990 baseline. Expanding tar sands and LNG production obliterates reduction targets.
