Canada Votes in First Green MP

Canada Votes in First Green MP

Where the Green agenda really impresses is on their goals for Averting Climate Catastrophe . Their recommendations include setting a GHG reduction goal of 30% below 1990 levels by 2020. As some of you know that is the highest number Europe is considering. Given Canada is currently about 24% above 1990 levels, compared with Europe which will achieve its 8% reduction by 2012, Canada’s Green Party goal is significant. The Green Party goes further to suggest that if other developed countries adopt more rigorous reduction targets, the Greens would match them. And they conclude by suggesting that policies and incentives would be implemented to enable the gradual and eventual achievement of carbon neutrality for the whole country.
