Energy [R]evolution is a groundbreaking report that shows how Canada can cut global warming pollution to the levels needed to prevent the worst effects of global warming while also meeting the energy needs of a growing world and phasing out nuclear power.
There is overwhelming consensus that global warming is an unequivocal, scientifically proven reality that is caused largely by burning fossil fuels. Climate scientists have said global greenhouse gas emissions must peak by 2015 and then decrease rapidly after that.
The report outlines how Canada can use available technology to cut the greenhouse gas emissions from its energy sector 34 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050.
Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council commissioned the report from the German Aerospace Center.
