The whole climate change thing with Canada has to be taken in perspective of the entire Earth.With oil at around $50 any oils and gas project will not generate a huge economic boom that you keep saying it will. Canada needs to diversify and invest in tech and automation. Not an fervent environmentalist but do think there needs to be a balance between the economic and climate policy. Climate change leads to huge costs as well.
Canada's contribution to global emissions is 1.6%
It is like saying hey there are 100 of us in this huge swimming pool. And me and my friend have decided not to pee into the pool! See? The water in the pool now is nice and clean we will drink it! Meanwhile the other 98 are peeing and pooping into the pool.
Crazy. I agree that we have to do something. But paralyzing one of your country's major industries to economic ruin doesnt make sense.
Anyway I do think Alberta will get much worse than it already is. In 10 years the oil industry will shrink by 30%.
I already have my Ontario permit to practice and will move out east if it makes good sense.
