"And for Canada, the latest results are terrible. The new data show that in 2018, our annual emissions rose yet again. This time, by a depressingly large 15 million tonnes of CO2 (MtCO2). As my chart below shows, we are now emitting 729 MtCO2 per year — our highest level in more than a decade."

@paulrr I bet the drop in UKs regional carbon footprint is because European Union and Globalization. Production and thus a good share of emissions happens offshore.

@ashwinvis You're probably right. A large chunk of Canada's emissions are from oil/gas production, our top export. The vast majority of our oil production is crude oil. 96% of Canada’s proven oil reserves are located in the oil sands. There's pressure from industry, some politicians and some of the public to avoid any policy decisions that would adversely affect the growth of the oil sands.
