My province is now emitting record-low CO2 levels from power generation

Europe is justly proud of its low carbon emissions. They generate 375 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt hour of electricity production. The US releases 450 grams per kWh, while China emits 800 grams per kWh.

My province has been aggressively eliminating its coal-fired power stations, and has been buying electricity from local solar and wind farms at generous rates. The recent massive investment in more efficient hydroelectric power plant supply tunnels increases power output without flooding land with new dams. As a result, every kilowatt hour of electricity in Ontario releases just 72 grams of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.


Of course, the filthy tar sands oil production more than compensates for the low emissions from my province.
