Canada has been called out by the UN as not reducing our carbon footprint enough. But they are basing their measures using various studies that had obvious mistakes such as converting 80f to read 80c and then doing their mathematical conjugations. ...hmmm, and these are scientists? We have 40 million people in this huge country, many many forests and wetlands, national parks larger than the city of Londion and I would have thought the very fact that we have so much air cleaning vegetation that it would somehow offset the damage we do by heating our homes when it is -20f outside. Our province is stopping emissions tests on passenger vehicles because these vehicles have improved so much over the years that it is silly to keep testing them every two years and getting the same answer. Instead, the province is going to start clamping down on commercial vehicles and hopefully manufacturers will read the writting on the wall and make the big trucks more fuel efficient and less polluting too. I get disgusted with this finger pointing when I think about China, India, pretty much all of Africa and the U.S. who seem to do nothing to stop polluting. I do my best to keep my footprint light. Because I live in a house, I do have some choices. Those in apartments or nursing homes, etc don't have any options regarding heating or power. So this nonsense of expecting everyone to be able to be able to reduce is silly. I am a big advocate of nuclear power. If done properly, such as our Candu reactors, they are safe and produce no emissions . You can bet that Japanese reactor was not a Candu!
