Under the Kyoto Protocol, Canada has committed to an average annual reduction of greenhouse gases of 6% below 1990 levels between 2008 and 2012. The transportation of freight contributes to 9% of Canada’s emissions. Through the application of decomposition techniques and scenario explorations, we show that since 1990, increasing cross-border trade and a concurrent modal shift towards trucks were the most important determinants in increasing freight sector emissions. Looking toward 2012, a… CONTINUE READING
