Global Warming

The overwhelming majority of climate scientists agree human activity is changing our climate. Carbon dioxide, a product of burning fossil fuels, has been identified as the largest single source of greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming. This is causing dramatic changes in ecosystems around the world. Reports show Pacific salmon turning up in the Arctic Ocean, for instance. Other effects include extreme flooding, drought, violent storms and other extreme weather events.

With the Kyoto Protocol coming into effect as of February 2005, Canada must take serious steps to reducing our greenhouse gas production. We have already found more oil and gas throughout the world than the planet can afford to burn. To open up new basins at a time when Canada needs to be developing non-polluting energy sources is a huge step in the wrong direction.
