加拿大第三大城溫哥華,位於卑詩省(圖片來源:加拿大環境署)加拿大卑詩省自由黨政府泛綠了!該省政府於13日所揭示的一項整體策略中,計劃從工業、政府樓宇、汽車與住家等處下手削減溫室氣體排放,誓言對抗全球暖化。省府在省議會開議的御前宣言中表示,政府希望在2020年以前,能將溫室氣體排放量至少削減至低於現行水準33%,也等於低於1990年水準10%。

省府在御前宣言中亦表示,為了達成2020年的目標,氣候行動小組必須分別就2012年及2016年,設立過渡時期的目標,以及為2050年規劃一項削減排放的長期目標。政府同時要求氣候行動小組必須制訂出可行的選擇與行動,譬如「氣候平衡」( climate neutral)發電、交通運輸潔淨化、綠色家園與建築、提升植物栽植率,以及全民監督等,讓卑詩省政府得以在2010年以前,完成碳平衡的目標。

British Columbia to Trim Greenhouse Gases, Go Carbon Neutral
VICTORIA, British Columbia, Canada, February 14, 2007 (ENS)

The Liberal government of British Columbia is turning green. In an overarching strategy revealed Tuesday, the government pledged to combat global warming by cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions from industry, government buildings, cars and homes. In the speech from the throne that introduces each new legislative session, the government said it will work to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 33 percent below current levels by 2020. That target will place emissions 10 percent below 1990 levels.

On the way to the 2020 target, said the government in the throne speech, a Climate Action Team will set interim targets for 2012 and 2016 and a longer-term emissions reduction target for 2050. The Climate Action Team will also be asked to identify "practicable options and actions, " such as generating climate neutral power, cleaning up automotive transport, greener homes and buildings, increasing tree-planting efforts, neighborly cooperation, and the critics weigh in, for making the government of B.C. carbon neutral by 2010.
