More Secret Advice: Its the whole economy, stupid

with 16 comments

There is a good article (here) on CCS. It is essentaially a rebuttal to the CBC article blogged below. What I like about this article is the observation that the climate debate is now one that wrongly equates climate change to oil sands. Clearly, other emissions are important and other emission reduction opportunities are likely cheaper than CCS. The graph below provides a forecast of three large sources of emissions in Canada: oil and gas, buildings and transport. As can be seen, transport emissions are much larger than all oil and gas emissions. So, the observation holds: yes oil and gas emissions are large, but transport emissions are larger. And don’t forget all our buildings.
