If compliance of “ Kyoto Protocol” is a problem, we have the solution!
Case Study: ALBERTA, CANADA
The Canadian economy will be more affected than that of any other country. Alberta will experience the strongest impact because of its energy production and use of coal. The Protocol could cost Alberta over eight billion dollars and thousands of jobs per year. A reduction in government revenues would have a negative effect on programs and services.
If the Kyoto Protocol is approved:
- Industry will have to modify technologies, resulting in higher product prices,
- Petroleum producers and other industries will have to purchase credits from countries not using their allotment,
- $2 to $6 billion worth of credits may have to be purchased each year, with costs ultimately passed on to consumers,
- Money spent on credits would leave Canada ,
- Resources and products would become less competitive in global markets,
- Industries that consume large amounts of energy would face rising prices,
- Emission targets could make oil sands projects uneconomical to continue,
- Investors would favour countries that do not have the extra costs associated with the Protocol, and
- Jobs would be lost because of the difficulty of remaining competitive with the U.S. , our largest trading partner and a non-participant in the Kyoto Protocol.
Some reports suggest:
- 450,000 jobs could be lost,1
- Income taxes could rise substantially,2
- Electricity costs could increase by 100%,3
- Natural gas prices could go up by 60%,3 and
- Gasoline could reach $1.10 per litre.3
All this would occur without making an actual or significant reduction in global emissions.
Despite being a small contributor (2%), Canada will pay heavily because of its fossil fuel, natural resource production. Estimates suggest the economic risk to Canada will be four times that of the European Economic Community and 10 times that of Japan .

Environmental benefits of solar powered portable greenhouse model GF1000 used in helping emissions reduction:
Greenfield Hydroponics Systems Inc, manufacturers US & Canadian patented solar, 110/220 volt powered portable greenhouses to grow various crops, Alberta has 37000 beef breeders. We can assist Alberta in 2 folds:
1. By implementing our technology we can assist farmers to over come the drought related feed problems permanently.
2. We can help provincial / federal government meeting emission reduction plan.
Each portable greenhouse model GF1000 comes with 2 KW solar modules.
If Greenfield 's US & Canadian patented Solar powered portable greenhouse model GF1000 is used by farmer to grow fodder, how much emissions is avoided in Wisconsin ?
In Wisconsin With 2 kW of photovoltaic capacity, the following emissions are avoided annually.
|NOx (lbs)||SO2 (lbs)||CO2 (lbs)|
These figures are estimates based on regional emission factors, and shall not be used for EPA State Implementation Plans and other regulatory proceedings. Actual emissions avoided may vary.
By using 2KW of photovoltaic capacity, you reduce carbon dioxide emissions equal to:
The emission from driving approximately 8,783 miles in an average passenger car!
By using 2KW of photovoltaic capacity, you reduce carbon dioxide emission equal to:
The carbon dioxide absorbed by approximately 1 acre of trees in one year!
How much emissions is avoided in Alberta if Greenfield's US & Canadian patented Solar & wind powered model GF1000 is used by farmer to grow fodder?
With 2 kW of photovoltaic capacity, the following emissions are avoided annually if 37000 beef breeders are encouraged to use solar powered portable greenhouse model GF1000 producing 1000 kg fodder per day.
|NOx (lbs)||SO2 (lbs)||CO2 (lbs)|
7,026 lb. / 2200 lbs= 3.19 MT
These figures are for budgetary purposes only. To get accurate figures on emission, you are requested to use local data.By using 2 KW * 37000 portable greenhouses = 74000 KW = 74 Mega Watts of photovoltaic modules capacity you reduce carbon dioxide emissions equal to:
The emissions from 37000 cars driving approximately 8,783 miles in an average passenger car!
By using 74 Mega Watts of photovoltaic capacity, you reduce carbon dioxide emissions equal to:
The carbon dioxide absorbed by approximately 37000 acre of trees in one year!
By using 37000 portable greenhouses farmers will grow 37000 MT ORGANIC fodder per day
