Calgary Tops in Canada

Calgary, you're Number One!

Toronto has per capita carbon emissions of 9.5 tonnes. Vancouver comes in at 4.9 tonnes. But Calgary, your per capita carbon emissions are a staggering 17.1 tonnes.

Not only is Calgary the worst in Canada, it's the fifth worst city on the planet. Calgarians' emissions are even far worse than the inhabitants of smog-choked Mexico City.

Calgary suffers from urban sprawl, traffic congestion and an utter reliance on coal-fueled power plants.
