Canada is lagging behind other nations when it comes to addressing climate change. Our country produces less than 1% of its energy from renewable
sources like wind and solar power and only employs a few thousand people. The U.S. is now investing 6x more person to build a clean-energy economy and ‘green’ jobs. And we emit 2 to 3 times more global warming pollution per person than most European countries.
Canadians can help stop climate change by speaking up. Call Prime Minister Stephen Harper at (613) 992-4211and leave him a voicemail message telling him you want Canada to be a leader at the UN Climate Summit this month.
