#elxn42: "We are falling behind" - Elizabeth May responds to Desmond Tutu's climate change petition

"I strongly support Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s call to implement the G7 leaders’ original plan for a decarbonized economy by 2050. In our platform, the Green Party commits to moving toward the elimination of fossil fuel use in Canada by mid-century.

Canada’s recently announced target, a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by 2030, is the weakest in the G7.

[...]

We are falling behind in the emerging low-carbon economy. (...) For the health of our planet, we must continue to push for a decarbonized economy by 2050."
