5. Transform our climate, and economy:
In addition to the Green Tax Shift, we will:

  • Cut greenhouse gas emissions to 30 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050.
  • Use cap and trade, with hard caps, for some large polluters.
  • Expand research and development of low-carbon technologies.
  • Improve energy productivity through smarter regulation of large appliances and vehicles, and a national program to retrofit existing buildings.
  • Support only bio-fuels that actually save carbon emissions and don’t distort food supplies or prices. That means no corn- or grain-based ethanol.
  • Participate constructively in global negotiations.
