Solving the Climate Crisis

If left unchecked, the climate crisis will cost the world economy upwards of $7-trillion.

Canada has not only failed to set ambitious targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, we have failed to come close to meeting the inadequate targets we have set.

Green MPs Will

  • Work with provinces to ensure no new coal-fired electrical generation plants are built in Canada  
  • Push for the global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that are required to achieve a target of 350 ppm to cap the maximum global temperature increase at 1.5 degrees  
  • Work with Canada’s renewable energy sector to accelerate the construction of green infrastructure, ensuring a majority of Canada’s energy needs come from renewable sources by 2025  
  • Introduce a carbon price through a fee and dividend system, which will encourage private sector investment in green technology and green jobs
