The average Canadian dumps around 20 tonnes of climate destabilizing pollution every year. The shared target that Obama and Harper set up means that will need to fall to 14 tonnes per person per year or lower in the next decade. Most Canadians are already living in provinces with per capita emissions very close to or even far below that 2020 target. Alberta and Saskatchewan are 500% above that level. How long can this continue?
