New Report from the Pembina Institute Looks at What It Will Take for BC to Meet Its Climate Change Goals
Mind the Gap, a November 2007 report from the Pembina Institute, looks at the BC government’s plan to reduce emissions by 33 per cent by 2020. This 33 per cent goal means a reduction of 36 million tonnes of greenhouse gases.

Mind the Gap looks at six different sectors and makes recommendations for how the government might close the gap between what it has pledged to do and what it has done so far.
