Updates Canada's situation and responses to climate change. Current
government and industry actions are insufficient to meet Canada's goal of
stabilizing emissions at the 1990 levels by the year 2000. Greenhouse gas
emissions are projected to rise 36% over 1990 levels by 2020 under current
and projected policies. If climate change occurs to the extent predicted
by current models, there will be significant risk to Canada's environment

This second national report declares that Britain is set to cut its
emissions of CO2 by up to eight percent by the year 2000
compared to 1990 levels, exceeding the current goal of the climate
convention. However, CO2 emissions are expected to rise by
2010. Emissions of methane are expected to be 22% lower, and nitrous oxide
62% lower. Reasons for the decline in emissions by 2000 include a switch
from coal and oil to gas, and increased road fuel taxes.
