Addressing environmental racism in Canada is not only a matter of justice, but also of meeting Canada’s human rights obligations
Bill C-12 is a step in the right direction, but its not enough to meet Canada's goal for a decarbonized economy.
None of Canada's past climate targets or plans has been credible. But the math on the latest plan, which relies on a steadily increasing carbon price, could have Canada meet its 2030 goal.
If Canada began to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by about four per cent per year, we could still meet our 2030 climate targets.
Canada is already behind on tackling climate change and catching up will be expensive, but relying on carbon capture technologies is risky and expensive.
