    One more proof that climate change is not taken seriously. The awakening will be traumatic!

      Exactly. Those of us living in the real world find it bizarre that no US politician has a proposal for a carbon tax tied to ending carbon usage over any period of time! By reasonable projections an initial goal should be no later than 2030 with adjustments over time as data becomes available. Even a modest tax on gasoline of say four dollars a gallon is nowhere in sight.

    I am embarrassed that a sparsely populated country like Canada should be the third worst contributor of CO2 emissions. A lot of work needs to be done here!

      JJEHR, you need to get this in perspective. The two biggest uses of carbon fuels are to keep warm and to power transport. Canada is not only extremely cold for a considerable portion of the year, it is also very large, so that its intercity transport is long-distance. I see Russia is not included in the analysis: a pity, because that is probably the only case where one would have been comparing like with like. Or perhaps not, for Canadians tend to imitate US lifestyles whereas Russians have perforce had to fight off the US and huddle together in tower blocks.

    BP’s predictions-thinking 20 years ahead. I have saved this post to my file and I will prove this graph is nowhere near the truth.
