When Moody's Investors Service downgraded Alberta's credit rating this week, Premier Jason Kenney reacted swiftly and decisively — to attack the messenger.

He took aim at Moody's for daring to include environmental risk in its report card.

As Moody's pointed out: "Alberta's oil and gas sector is carbon intensive and Alberta's greenhouse gas emissions are the highest among provinces. Alberta is also susceptible to natural disasters including wildfires and floods which could lead to significant mitigation costs by the province."
