ABSTRACT
The article reports on the belief of the Canadian Chemical Producers Association that Canada's chemical industry will find it hard to meet the government's new targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2010. The targets call for the industry to cut emissions by 18 percent from 2006 levels by 2010, with further reductions through 2020. Sierra Club of Canada also believes that the plan's intensity-based targets would cause emissions to rise instead of falling.
