Words rather than actions define Canada’s climate-change plan so far
Various budget spending measures for clean technology will help. But we are still far from having a credible climate action plan to meet Canada’s international commitments on greenhouse gas emissions.
The joint effort Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Barack Obama announced on March 10 to reduce methane emissions was underwhelming, writes David Crane. These emissions account for less than three per cent of U.S. total greenhouse gas emissions and less than six per cent in Canada, and the joint plan was only to reduce them by 45 per cent over a decade.
