Can we actually make a difference? The world is targeting a 30% reduction in carbon dioxide accumulations by 2030. To date our governments have failed us providing neither a credible plan nor demonstrating the resolve to stay on course. Climate Action Tracker rates Canada's current plans as Highly Insufficient and clearly we won't get there by government action alone. To successfully combat climate change everyone must pitch-in and help.
Most people believe the climate change issue is so large the effect of a single person, business or even a country is inconsequential. While the effect of one may seem irrelevant, the impact of many is not. In fact if every GHG producer in Canada reduced their use of carbon by just 5% a year for 6 years we could meet our responsibility before the 2030 date.
