The federal government is revamping the way resource projects are reviewed in Canada -- changes that include a requirement to look at upstream greenhouse gas emissions. Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr says projects affected by the transitional rules will be assessed for their impacts on both the economy and the environment. But he says environmental impact alone won't dictate whether a project gets the green light. (Hearings on Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project are almost over and the government is extending the deadline for a decision by four months, pushing it to December. Ottawa is also extending the project review period for TransCanada's Energy East pipeline by an extra six months and adding three temporary members to the National Energy Board in an effort to do greater public consultation.)
