Scientific consensus calls for industrialized countries to reduce their greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions by the year 2020 to 25-40% below 1990 levels. However the Saskatchewan government set its target as 20% below 2006 levels. As our emissions have grown so rapidly over the past 20 years, this would still leave our provincial emissions well above 1990 levels. Saskatchewan’s emission rise is much greater than that of most countries.
SES has been raising the alarm that the provincial target for ghg reduction set by the Saskatchewan government is inadequate, and that the provincial strategy is insufficient to meet even this inadequate target.
