Saskatchewan 2014 GHG emissions by Sector.

 

The first step, in understanding the technical and economic feasibility of reducing GHG emissions, is knowing their source. Hence Saskatchewan's 2014 data (the most recent year available) is included below;

Of note is 'Minerals and Mining' represents the single largest category of emissions (31.2 percent) and within that 'Oil & Gas Fugitives' dominate at 17.4 percent.

The second largest category is Transport (21.9 percent), followed by 'Electricity Generation' (21.1 percent) which is also an area in which substantial reductions could be achieved at zero or even negative, cost (hint: wind energy).
