Greenhouse Gas reduction
USA want to reduce green house gases by 17% by 2020 in comparison to 2005 emission levels. They also want to further reduce them by 26-28% by 2025 in comparison to 2005 levels. The targets suggest an average reduction of 1.2% from 2005-2020, 2.3 - 2.8% from 2020-2025.
Canada attended the Paris climate conference and set itself targets on greenhouse gas reduction. However, the Tar sands provide 0.01% of global green house gas emissions so it is hard to limit emissions. Canada even left the Kyoto protocall in 2012 as they couldn't fulfill their targets. However, the newly elected liberal party recently cut subsidies for the fossil fuel industry.
Energy Security
87% of the countries energy is non renewable. It isn't energy independant, it relies heavily on other countries (40% of its oil comes from Canada) the other 45% comes from OPEC countries. However, a lot of the OPEC countries are politically unstable and therefore not the best sources of oil.
