ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Canada's actual compliance with its Copenhagen emission-reduction targets from a 2005 base-year by 2020. Topics include the increase in real gross domestic product which means a 31 percent decrease in amount of emissions per unit of economic production over that same time period, drop in per-capita emissions by 2009, and increase in vehicle-kilometres compared to increase in emissions of only 3.5 percent since 2005. Improvement in Canada's emission intensity is discussed.
