As the latest COP is now underway, Prof. Hansen has released an important summary titled Climate Change in a Nutshell: The Gathering Storm I encourage you to read it.
Here is the link to Dr. Hansen’s article.
Robyn Allan has been asking and trying to answer this question for quite some time. I have never seen someone from within the oil and gas community answer it. She thinks that as much as 80% is sheltered by one means or another.
Anyone out there with links to #CAPP? Perhaps someone in that organization knows the truth.

I do not think there has been an open airing of the consequences of Alberta’s climate policy on the rest of Canada. AB and the federal government are quick to point out the economic benefit of growing prodcution in the tarsands for the rest of Canada but not the environmental burden. Now that both MB and Ontario have stepped back from their provincial plans, the need for that conversation to occur is greater than ever. Canada must participate in the crafting of a global carbon budget that includes our domestic emissions and the emissions associated with the fossil fuels that we export. A good place to start is to better understand the elephant in the room – the oil and gas economy in Alberta – and a good place to begin is with this contribution from Barry Saxifrage. https://www.nationalobserver.com/2015/12/08/news/albertas-new-climate-policies-explained-missing-infographic
