The opposite of progress

Scenarios of Canadian Emissions to 2020

A Canadian government report stating that Canadian GHG emissions in 2020 will be 20% higher than the governments promised reductions from the 2009 Copenhagen accord. The estimate of emissions is also 14 million tonnes or 2% higher than last years estimate for 2020. So not only is Canada on a trajectory to miss its GHG emission targets by a mile (1.6 kilometres), but that trajectory is moving in the wrong direction. And the report calls this “significant progress”

This type of “progress” is sure to lead us to ruin.
