Write a 1000-1200 word essay that responds to the following:
Consider the following statements:
Canada’s per capita greenhouse gases emissions are among the highest in the world, higher than China and even the United States.
Climate Action Tracker, an organization that monitors how governments are doing in terms of their policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, gives the Canadian government an overall rating of “highly insufficient,” only one category above its worst designation of “critically insufficient.”
One of the above statements appears to frame the problem of carbon emissions as a matter of individual responsibility, and the other as a matter of public policy. Which frame is more appropriate for problems such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions?
