Open Letter on Climate Change to the Government of Canada

In December 2009 Science for Peace published an open letter on climate change addressed to the Government of Canada. Over 550 Canadian Faculty members signed the letter that called for immediate and drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The letter pointed out that the time frame of reductions is critical and should be dictated by earth’s physical environment and not by political or short-term economic considerations. The scale is global: climate knows no boundaries; Canada’s emissions harm people everywhere.
