Oil sands excluded from UN report gets no mention?

By: Mike De Souza, Postmedia News

The federal government has acknowledged that it deliberately excluded data indicating a 20 per cent increase in annual pollution from Canada’s oilsands industry in 2009 from a recent 567-page report on climate change that it was required to submit to the United Nations.

The numbers, uncovered by Postmedia News, were left out of the report, a national inventory on Canada’s greenhouse gas pollution.

It revealed a six per cent drop in annual emissions for the entire economy from 2008 to 2009, but does not directly show the extent of pollution from the oilsands production, which is greater than the greenhouse gas emissions of all the cars driven on Canadian roads.

The data also indicated that emissions per barrel of oil produced by the sector is increasing, despite claims made by the industry in an advertising campaign.

Great article. Former Minister Jim Prentice supports Cap and Trade System in Alberta

He is known as a very ethical man. Also from an Alberta ethics specialist, Donna Kennedy Glans -

And this is crucial - we are emitting more green house gases per capita than many countries - we rank 8th in the world on some indexes.

Internationally, Qatar is often #1. According to this Saudi Arabia has a better emmisions record than Canada Ezra Levant, former tobacco lobbyist writes about ethical oil. I think looking at this chart puts a few questions in that argument. NEWSFLASH -Saudi Arabia is more eco-friendly than Canada. When that happens, you know there is work that needs to be done here.

So here is another article she recommends oil sands expected to outdo carbon cuts
