Complete shift to renewable energy within Canada’s reach, academics say
School of Environment and Sustainability Prof. Ann Dale and over 70 scholars from Canadian Sustainable Dialogues are calling for a national move to renewable energy and an end to subsidies for the fossil fuel industry in a policy document released today.
An article in the Globe and Mail highlights the group’s key messages:
“Canada could shift entirely to renewable sources of electricity by 2035 and eliminate 80 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, says a group of Canadian academics that is aiming to spur government action on climate change.
To get there, they recommend a national carbon-pricing plan, and greater effort to move electricity produced from low-carbon sources such as hydro dams across provincial borders.”
