World Wildlife Fund Says Canada Is Eighth Of Eight - Worst Record In The G8
"The World Wildlife Fund gives Canada a failing grade on its climate change practices, ranking the country behind all other major industrialized nations, including the U.S.
Canada finished in eighth place among the G8 nations -- its worst finish since the WWF first began releasing the annual report card three years ago. The report finds that Canada is one of the few G8 countries whose emissions are still rising -- largely due to expanding activity in Alberta's tar sands.
And Canada's per-capita emissions are among the worst in the G8, along with sixth-place finisher Russia. Even the United States is now ahead of Canada in terms of its efforts to combat climate change, says Gerald Butts, president and CEO of WWF Canada."
