Shades of Green

Given the focus on the environment this week(April 22 was Earth day), I learnt a few things. I learnt that you can’t lump everyone into green or not green. Depending on how dedicated and involved people can be labeled different shades of green. I guess as a country Canadians are not as green as we thought.

I’m disappointed. I really thought that we are pretty green. But we come in third in the world in terms of per capita greenhouse gas emissions. Australia is #1 and United States is #2.
