In Alberta, if high emission companies exceed emission targets, they have an option to pay into an environment technology fund.
The report also rejects the notion that shale gas is a viable way to meet energy demands.
On Thursday, The David Suzuki Foundation and the Pembina Institute two of Canada's most respected environmental think tanks, released a report that dashes the idea that exchanging coal for natural gas is an environment saving option.

"Economic modelling consistently shows that efficient policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will lead to less natural gas than under business as usual even in the near term," said Bramley, director of research for the Pembina Institute.

EDMONTON Slower natural gas production is needed to save the environment, says a new report.
Requiring producers to publicly disclose the chemical composition of the fluids used in fracturing ("fracking") of unconventional gas wells is also a recommendation in the report.
Natural gas effects focus of think tanks
"The evidence is strong that Canada should be focusing not on natural gas, but on zero emission solutions, such as renewable energy," he said.
Key recommendations in the report include requiring new natural gas processing plants to capture and store carbon dioxide, strengthening government regulations to minimize the impacts on air, water and soil from natural gas operations, and improving environmental assessment and governance processes.
Alberta Environment spokesman Chris Bourdeau says his department has shifted their focus to monitor and mitigate the "cumulative effects" of human activities in the province, but natural gas will continue to be a source of energy in Alberta's future.
carbon capture and storage."
"We've recognized here in Alberta that there's no single fuel that can meet all of our energy needs in the foreseeable future," says Bourdeau. "There will be a mix, and fossil fuels will be one in that mix. That's why our focus of our climate change Pink Ghd strategy is looking at ways to de carbonize fossil fuels, so that's why you see such a large commitment here by the province to Babyliss Straightener Clicks
The only solution to this goal, says Bramley, is renewable energy like solar and wind power.
