Canada Offers to Lower Emissions in exchange for Keystone XL approval

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to gain approval for the Keystone XL pipeline, according to CBC News.

It is worth pointing out that Canada has already far exceeded the emissions targets it set for itself under the Copenhagen Accord in December 2009 (the yellow line below).
