Canada still performing poorly on the Energy Transition Index

The latest Energy Transition Index published by the World Economic Forum has Canada at a lowly 28th place, meaning we are just not doing enough to ready ourselves for a post-carbon world.
The 2020 Index, which essentially measures how prepared countries are to combat climate change, shows Scandinavian countries in an enviable lead, with the top 10 positions filled by Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Austria, Britain, France, Netherlands and Iceland, with Canada lurking in a distant 28th place, just above the United States (32nd). The Alberta oil sands are a big part - but by no means the only reason - of why Canada scores so poorly.
