Canada has the worst climate change record in the industrialized world
This is embarrassing.
Canada is dead last among industrialized nations in a new climate change performance index.
“Canada still shows no intention on moving forward with climate policy and therefore remains the worst performer of all industrialized countries,” says the report released by Germanwatch, a sustainable development advocacy group.
The index takes into account a variety of indicators related to greenhouse gas emissions, development of emissions, climate policy, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Canada particularly stands out when comparing its low scores on emissions, renewable energy investments and climate policies.
