Its highlights include a phase-out of coal fired electricity by 2030 coupled with a transition to 30 percent renewable electricity generation, an overall cap – increased from today’s levels to 100 million tonnes for the oil sands, an economy-wide price on carbon, and a strategy to reduce methane emissions by 45 percent by 2025.

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see.
