    The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional association for registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students who practise in all roles and sectors across Ontario. RNAO welcomes the release of Ontario's Climate Change Discussion Paper 2015 as an important step towards the radical transformation necessary to meet Ontario's greenhouse gas targets. While the province's contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is less than many other jurisdictions, it can continue to play a key leadership role to demonstrate what is possible to the rest of the country and to the rest of the world. Already, Ontario has led the way by shutting down the heavily polluting coal plants that also produced large volumes of greenhouse gases relative to the amount of electricity produced. However, we remain large per capita emitters, so we have a long way to go.
