Phasing out Coal in Canada

  • Posted by Mitchell Flexo on June 27, 2010 in Energy
  • The Canadian Minister of the Environment has announced that coal burning power plants must drastically cut emissions or face closure by 2025. The pronouncement signals a national shift towards more efficient, less polluting natural gas plants. The measure is expected to reduce Canadian emissions by approximately 15 megatonnes, which equates to taking 3.2 million vehicles off the road. The exact details of the regulations are yet to be announced, but the decision is a good one not only for Canada but for the rest of the world.
