Denmark recently had an election, prior to which 1.2 per cent of the population called for a more aggressive response to the climate emergency. Danes now have a government that has strengthened its 2030 target to reduce carbon emissions by 70 per cent below the 1990 level.
Canada’s pitiful target is 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
If 452,000 Canadians start demanding greenhouse gas reduction targets on Denmark’s level, and we vote for a party that has a platform to meet those demands, we can put our country in the company of others that realize the urgency we are facing.
Become part of the 452,000 today. Write letters to the editor, call out politicians, and demonstrate your concern. Just 1.2 per cent of us can make a difference.
(Full disclosure: I was born in Denmark and my birth country has made me proud by their action.)
