The authors of this paper review current science, from the most credible sources, to help provide an understanding of the basis for, and the scale of, the global warming problem and the kind of contribution BC might make to its solution. They hope that with this information British Columbians can engage in serious discussions about the tools — both policy and technological — needed to prevent dangerous global warming. The authors recognize global warming as the present and credible threat of climate change. They do not recommend specific policies, but rather seek here to benchmark what the short, medium and longer term GHG reduction targets must be if BC is to fulfill its fair share of meeting the global challenge.
