Which is mostly what I was getting at. Especially when it puts us at the same level as the USA which also has oil production, but a far dirtier grid.

Canada *is* at the same level as the US in terms of **per capita** CO2 emissions.



I've linked several sources on this, you're not listening Sam

This is the first link of yours I have seen. I wonder what the emissions could possibly be coming from. Energy is the biggest CO2 source, and we are over 80% CO2 free with our power.

"This is because it’s a vast country with a small population and abundant natural resources..

that are spread across its wilderness, which means it has proportionally high emissions from transport, industry and energy."

It's because it's CO2 emissions:share of world population

Looked through the link. It seems it is mostly Alberta and Saskatchewan. If those two provinces changed, and quit electing right wing nut jobs, then Canada's CO2 would drop.

Canada doesn’t have to do shit until India and China get their mordor-like countries in shape.

China is actually the world leader at pushing renewables. They have huge solar farms. They are dirty ad hell, but are doing more than most nations to get cleaner.

When they reach a comparable level to Canada, we’ll go full on clean initiative. Doing so right now would hinder our economy and allow India and China to go scott free.

No, the problem is too significant for any nations to gold back and wait. It would hurt our economy worse to continue to invest in a dying industry. We need to shut down the tar sands.

I wonder if that graph counts methane, and counts the melting permafrost as a source. Or agriculture. Or something besides CO2. Methane is a problem, but not like CO2 is.
