United Conservative Party’s (UCP) Brian Jean made the comments on X, posting a Global Carbon Atlas graphic that shows emissions of 175 countries for 2021. China is the top emitter according to the graphic with 30.9 percent of emissions. The United States is second at 13.5 percent, and India third at 7.3 percent.
“Canada—at only 1.5 percent—is being sacrificed on the altar of anti-development / anti-progress / anti-energy ideologies in Ottawa,” Mr. Jean wrote.

“We can phase out emissions and help the world decarbonize all while we grow Alberta’s energy industry.”

Premier Danielle Smith has previously suggested exporting more natural gas to Asia and Eastern Europe to help reduce global emissions.
