What is the biggest scandal of them all?

Canada ranks almost at the bottom of the Climate Change Performance Index, a highly reputable scientific report on the contribution to global warming of countries around the globe.

The report shows that Canada is one of the world’s ten largest carbon dioxide emitters.

That may not be surprising, given the size of the Canadian economy and Canada’s geography and climate.

Canada’s share of global emissions — 1.58 per cent — puts this country in tenth place. And so there are nine bigger emitters than us.

But Canada’s performance is really much worse than that tenth place indicates.
