ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plans of the Canadian government to address issues about greenhouse emissions that drive climatic changes and the stance of Albertans on the federal proposals. The federal plan suggests that heavy industry will have to cut its emissions by 30 percent between 2007 and 2020. However, the challenge for the local government of Alberta is to find ways to reconcile environmental policy with economic necessity brought by its power plants that contribute to emissions.
