PROJECT GREEN RAISES CRITICAL QUESTIONS
Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions have been rising steadily since the early 1990s. To reach Kyoto accord commitments the country needs to cut emissions by about one-quarter. That presents a significant challenge.
Just recently senior officials in Prime Minister Paul Martin’s office advanced something called "Project Green." Part of this project proposes that Canada purchase credits equivalent to 100 million tonnes of emissions. According to Toronto’s The Globe and Mail, this would cover nearly half of Canada’s obligation under the Kyoto accord.
