The Canadian federal government released its 2030 action plan this week to begin bending the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions curve downward. In a backgrounder on the government’s official ministry website it describes why action is needed now stating, “Canada’s average temperatures are rising at twice the global average, and three times in the North.”
One sector is contributing more GHGs than any other. It is oil and gas, a sector that employs hundreds of thousands, and indirectly through the industries, its products support, millions. Canada is the 4th largest fossil fuel energy producer in the world. And now the industry is being asked to do its part to reduce carbon emissions by 31% from 2005 levels, by 2030.
