Quotes

"While both countries have introduced regulations, the U S regulations have a much deeper cut in providing real meaningful, substantial reductions in greenhouse gases compared to Canada" said Scott Vaughan, the institute's president and the former federal commissioner for the environment and sustainable development
“If we don’t even have the basic child care data that we’ve been putting out … nobody will be able to say, "We have less child-care spaces or this province is spending more money or less money, this province changed the regulations so they have a worse staff ratio for infants" ” said Friendly
"The real need for water is not drinking water, or sanitation water, that's a relatively small term in water balance," he says. "The big use of water, something like 80 to 85 per cent, depending on where you are, is for growing food, which is to say, irrigation."
"Green Economy driven by resource efficiency is the basis for sustainable development and poverty eradication. A green economy revolution is already taking place in Kenya, where the harvesting of geothermal energy from the East African Rift is just one of the many renewable energy projects underway across the country. By learning to more accurately value our own natural resources, Kenya will be able to better harness these strategies as it moves towards a holistic, inclusive green economy in the future.” "
