BROOKLIN, Canada, Sep 29 (IPS) – Canada should move quickly to cut greenhouse gas emissions, the country’s environmental auditor warned Thursday.
Earlier this week, leading U.S. scientists said that the Earth is warmer than it has been in 10,000 years and less than one degree C from being the warmest in a million years.
“Our future is at stake,” said Johanne Gélinas, Canada’s commissioner of the environment and sustainable development.
“I am more troubled than ever by the federal government’s longstanding failure to confront one of the greatest challenges of our time,” Gélinas wrote in her annual audit report.
