Liberals to unveil road map to a net-zero emissions Canada today

GOLDSTEIN: Awaiting Trudeau's Alice in Wonderland climate law

Ditto his interim promise to reduce them by more than 218 million tonnes annually, meaning by more than 30% below 2005 levels, by 2030. Industry groups broadly supported the bill, but said more details on actual emissions reductions are needed.

Canada is one of the 120 countries that have committed to net-zero emissions by 2050.

That means the first assessment report on the 2030 targets could be 12 years away.

Amos said the bill's language is unambiguous: the minister "must" set national emissions targets, for example, and "must" establish emissions reduction plans that get tabled in Parliament.

Speaking to reporters, Trudeau described climate change as "one of the greatest challenges of our times", and said Canadians have made it clear that they "want climate action now".

Alberta's abundance of natural gas will make it the second cheapest supplier of hydrogen in the world, after Russia, Alberta's Associate Minister of Natural Gas Dale Nally said Monday.Nally said multiple projects in Western Canada could allow Alberta to grow its hydrogen production, including two fully permitted pipelines that had been planned to connect natural gas fields with LNG export projects that could be repurposed to export hydrogen. And left-of-centre politicians aren't the only ones who see merit in the basic idea, either - among those applauding the government's new legislation on Thursday was Shell Canada, the oil and gas giant.


The bill requires the environment minister to prepare progress reports for target years and another set of reports summarizing Canada's greenhouse gas emissions inventory. She would like the legislation to have a concrete reference to climate goals for 2025 and 2030 and a plan on how to achieve them.

"Given that Canada has missed every climate target in the past 20 years, strong accountability legislation is a necessary tool for breaking this pattern and tackling the climate emergency head-on. However, the proposed legislation now lacks key elements". She said the bill promises to set targets but has nothing to actually meet them and no real teeth.

"It is ultimately up to Canadians to continue to choose governments that are serious about reducing climate change and that will be accountable to Canadians every five years".

Currently, Australia, China, Germany, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and the United Kingdom are pursuing hydrogen strategies to reduce carbon emissions because hydrogen produces water vapour rather than CO2 when it combusts in combination with oxygen. A previous version also said the proposed climate legislation is Bill C-15.

She said to live up to its title, the bill will need to set specific carbon budgets for how much Canada can emit each year, decide where those emissions are going to come from, and then show the ways to hit those budgets.

The proposed legislation doesn't say what those targets will be. "We need to fundamentally fix the way we do climate action in Canada because it is not working".
