As the human population rising in the past half-century and world economic development seven times more, our environmental expectations have been overwhelming. People wonder little about the world than they actively need to build a “bubble” environment wherein the excessive-consumption of natural resources falsely improves economic efficiency.

The subsequent major threat — global warming — doesn’t get the US’s concentration, the state that accounts for a quarter of all fossil fuel emissions. Consequently, Washington seeks to hold their peace until there is all the proof of global warming, but it will be too late for significant global warming to be prevented. While the heat flux increases, it impacts every form of life. Intensive warm waves, more devastating hurricanes, less food production, melting glaciers, and rising oceans will trigger climatic changes.

On the other hand, while the US delays countermeasures to climatic change, Nova Scotia stated its comeback to the global climatic change that is significantly caused by carbon emission. Likewise, the government partnered with renewable power industries to shift to 100% renewable by 2022. The power department stated that by reducing fossil fuel emission, the country could be protected from harsh weather conditions caused by climate change.

However, by 2020, Nova Scotia will not reach its 40% clean energy target, and the state blames the pandemic caused by COVID 19. The previous week, the province revised its sustainable energy regulatory requirements so that a new program for the province’s key power station, Nova Scotia energy, could perhaps achieve a longer time-frame for the sustainable energy objective. The entire power generation during 2020 and 2022 must be 40 % viable, stated Minister of Power and Mining Derek Mombourquette.

Mombourquette stated during a conference, “We will still meet that objective, but we’ll do so in a manner which utilizes the funding of Nova Scotia and helps protect the Taxpayer.” Mombourquette retorted that the provincial government would still have to purchase clean power to compensate for the delay in production, had the province preferred to implement the 2020 emissions target. Additionally, the COVID-19 has rendered global energy prices more volatile, and Mombourquette remarked that the government failed to take risks in costs by import dependency. 

The law requires carbon dioxide emissions to reduce through 2030 to 53% lower than 2005 rates and gross zero through 2050.

The bill does not explain how the electricity mix of Nova Scotia Electricity can strive to satisfy these goals. The organization already generates over 50 percent of its energy from coal, which produces a greenhouse effect that releases carbon dioxide. The provincial government has pledged to provide further information in the state legislature to achieve emission reduction goals. Due to COVID-19, the advancement of such laws was stopped.
