Transforming the built environment = investing in prosperous, healthy and equitable communities.
Can B.C. have an LNG industry and still meet its climate targets?
There are two problems underlying B.C. minister of environment Mary Polak's estimate for carbon pollution from the PNW LNG project.
Starting in 2018, there should be predictable increases of up to $15 per tonne annually, for which businesses and families can plan.
After all, constructing new buildings and upgrading existing buildings to super energy-efficient standards is a cost-effective way to create jobs and curb carbon pollution.
While emissions in Canada’s other most populous provinces are projected to decrease significantly between now and 2030, the new plan means B.C.’s emissions will remain nearly constant.
The federal government must put forth a vision and provide the right tools to curb emissions from buildings.
There’s less risk — and more reward — in taking action than in avoiding it.
Four ways the B.C. government could make good on the promise of the Paris Agreement and Vancouver Declaration, and deliver the courageous Climate Leadership Plan we need.
