Statistics Canada released some new GHG data today, linking emissions to economic accounts. Allows us to look at GHGs by industry and household sectors.

This calls for some charts.

First up. Total GHG emissions by province, 2009 and 2016 (date range of this data). Note: these totals will differ slightly from the National Inventory Account data. Explanation on that here: www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-quoti…
Now let's "per capita" that data. SK jumps up. AB actually declines (*slightly*) between 2009 and 2016 due to population growth.
We can break it down a bit further, looking at INDUSTRIAL and HOUSEHOLD emissions. First let's look at industrial emissions. Still the big driver behind AB and SK GHGs:
*Household* emissions look quite different. Large differences across provinces here due to emission intensity of their electric grids, fuel sources for heating, and transportation:
Lastly, because it wouldn't be a true chart thread without at least *one* animated plot, here's the battle for household emission supremacy across the provinces since 2009. Must be something in the potatoes...
Ok. Not "fin".
2 more, because they're interesting (to me). Looking closer at household emissions. We can break it down into "electricity and other fuels" and "motor fuels" (think: driving).

Here's electricity. Across the board drop in per capita emissions due to a cleaner grid
And here are motor fuels (and lubricants). Not the same fall. Flat to up in most provinces between 2009 and 2016. SK stands out.
A few more plots, digging further into sector-level data. Here's the time trend for emissions by sector (top 15 emitting sectors).

Electricity emissions declined while those from O&G climbed from 2009 to 2016.

Legend is ordered according to 2016 ranking.
Another way to view the data: a scatter plot of 2009 and 2016 emissions. Above the 45 degree line is an INCREASE in emissions. Below the line is a DECREASE. Point size scaled by 2016 emission size.
Emissions change by sector, 2009 to 2016.
Same as above, but % change in emissions by sector.
