Canada sets carbon emissions reduction target of 30% by 2030

Canada has announced it will commit to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, an ambitious target made possible in large part by the success of the provinces in reducing their own emissions.

The announcement was made today in Winnipeg by Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq.


Canada is responsible for 1.48% of the world’s Co2 emissions.

    I wish the PC party, nationally and in places like Alberta and Ontario, would stop calling themselves “Conservative”. They’re not anymore; It’s false advertising. Free up the name so a *real* conservative party can adopt it.

    I have the perfect solution on how we can reduce Co2 emissions by 30% in 2030. The government could put a complete stop to immigration and the temporary foreign worker program for the next fifteen years. Since they are letting in 250,000 people a year into Canada including from Muslim countries think of all the potential Co2 emitters that would be prevented from coming in to Canada. Multiculturalism is not carbon friendly!

    If only we had a conservative gov’t.
    Voting only lends legitimacy to these assholes.

    This is just window dressing for the next election.
    It doesn’t mean anything.

    I can hear the conversation now:
    “How long until you plan on retiring from politics?”
    “5 years”
    “8 years”
    “3 years”
    “I just started, so maybe 12 years”
    “4 years”
    “OK, so from what I’m hearing, we’ll all be gone within 12, so let’s give ourselves a couple years extra just in case and tell them we’ll do it in 15. Sound good?”

    Should be an easy target with all manufacturing leaving Ontario. By the way, is Wynne back from her American tour yet where she is lecturing Americans on sex?

    “Canada is responsible for 1.48% of the world’s Co2 emissions.”
    And receives about 90% of the nagging from the enviro nuts.
