More calls to reduce greenhouse emissions

An environmental protection advocacy group, Environmental Defence, released its report on the oil sands entitled "Reality Check".

The report says the federal government has got to take what it calls drastic action, if Ottawa wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The report uses information from the autonomous International Energy Agency's position which says two-thirds of the worlds fossil fuel reserves must stay in the g round if the planet is to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The report calls on the feds to establish a carbon tax and write strict regulations that require energy operations in the oil sands to substantially reduce emissions.
