Imagine Premiers saying we’d like to look after your children’s climate future 67 per cent of the time. Will global 440 ppm of CO2 “capped,” give us a 67 per cent chance to stay below 2 C?
We are at 400 ppm of CO2 now. Take time for your answer. Canadian Premiers meet next summer(2014) to create a National Energy Policy.
Imagine Premiers saying we will take care of your children’s climate future 90 per cent of the time. Will global 400 ppm of CO2 “capped,” give us a 90 per cent chance of stabilizing global temperatures at 2 C?
The Premier’s energy policy, led by Allison Redford, will look after our children’s climate future 0 per cent of the time. James Hansen says passing 2 C “guarantees” global disaster. The UN agrees. Just care for our children’s climate future.
Imagine a global climate energy policy which guarantees 100 per cent of the time, our children’s climate future. 2 C is disastrous. 1.5 C is dangerous. 0.8 C isn’t safe enough.
The International Energy Agency(IEA) warned us on May 1, 2012, that we have five more years “left” to act on a low-carbon energy plan which will keep us from passing 2 C by 2030.
With Harper, 2012/13 has passed exponentially increasing our carbon emissions. In “2014,” our Premiers will have a high-carbon energy plan…”doubling GHG’s.” We have four years left to plan … to act?
Most scientists say “2017” is enough time to act. There is a 30 per cent chance we don’t have four more years. The exact time for “irreversible” global warming isn’t certain.
Canadians need to be thinking … acting through 2017. A stabilized clean energy economy “reducing” GHG’s is a categorical imperative.
We are on the edge of passing the tipping point of no return for global warming. Guarantee our children’s climate future with a 100 per cent margin of safety. Activate a plan which will return us to 350 ppm of CO2.
