Premier Gordon Campbell has never been one to shy away from a challenge.
As he prepares to unveil this month the details on his government’s February pledge to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 33 per cent by 2020, there should be no doubt he faces one of his most challenging tasks. Read more

There are clear evidences of global warming, but the reasons are debated. Some climate scientist states that human activity has only a very limited impact on global greenhouse emission, because much more comes from natural sources. What is your point on it? Could you give some statistical evidence of the greenhouse emission of human and natural (volcano, seas, swamps etc.) origin. Read more

When I was asked to meet the cofounder of Greenpeace, my eyes rolled up a bit at the thought of meeting someone I assumed was an environmental militant.

There is no greater hypocrisy than Canada’s continuing dismal response to Kyoto. Federal politicians paint themselves green and spew more hot air than a coal-fired power plant while emissions continue to rise. Canada should either produce a plan to comply with Kyoto or admit we can’t and get out.

Japan should promote nuclear power and renewable energy sources to replace fossil fuels to fight global warming, a Canadian scientist said Wednesday.
Although Japan has tried more sincerely than other developed countries to achieve its greenhouse gas emission cuts under the Kyoto Protocol, its efforts won’t be effective enough to reach the goal, according to Patrick Moore, chairman and chief scientist of Greenspirit Strategies, a Canadian environment consultancy.

As the world seeks ways to cut atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) — the greenhouse gas produced by burning fossil fuels — science says managed forests will play a key role.
Trees are the most powerful concentrators of carbon on Earth. Through photosynthesis, they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in their wood, which is nearly 50 percent carbon by weight. Read more
