|This chart puts
the magnitude of Canada's task in context. Our emissions in 1990 were 607
Mtonnes making our Kyoto target 571
|We thus need to
reduce emissions by about 240 Mtonnes from the expected level under
"business as usual". That is close to a one third reduction from
our current practice.
|A cynic would
also note that our emissions estimates are increasing every couple of years
when they are re-evaluated.
