The article argues in favor of the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol in Canada. According to the author, the Kyoto Protocol is an innovation agenda in disguise which is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. Among the efforts by the Canadian government in reducing emissions are setting up commissions and initiating consultations with business. The three areas of growth under the Kyoto Protocol based on a study by the Pembina Institute include low-impact renewable energy and alternative transportation technology.
