“We are in a climate emergency, and Canadians need our governments to act like it.”
A Statement from Dale Marshall, National Climate Program Manager for Environmental Defence Canada, on the United Nation’s IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report
Posted August 10th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
Ottawa, Ontario – This science in the IPCC’s report released today makes it clearer than ever that Canada cannot waste time and money on false solutions being pushed by oil and gas companies that sanction more oil and gas production.
Fossil fuel companies are overwhelmingly responsible for the problem in the first place and have spent years misleading the public about climate change and weakening our climate laws.
We are in a climate emergency, and Canadians need our governments to act like it. That means phasing out fossil fuels as quickly as possible, implementing a fair transition for workers and communities, and ramping up clean, cheap, reliable, renewable energy.
