Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Canada

Interesting data: did you know between 1990 and 2008, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia experienced the largest growth in greenhouse gas emissions: 72.8%, 42.8% and 32.0%, respectively!!! http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateur​s-indicators/default.asp?lang=​en&n=444DC5FC-1 .... also did you know Canada produces about 20% of the total emission in the world: http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateur​s-indicators/default.asp?lang=​en&n=042EDE8E-1 ... and for those who wonder what is the source of these emissions, check out: http://www.ec.gc.ca/indicateur​s-indicators/default.asp?lang=​En&n=995C74D1-1 and guess what: "Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are mostly due to our heavy use of fossil fuels for transportation, electricity production, oil and gas extraction, heating, and other energy-related areas."!!! could nuclear energy make a difference???
