Can we “green” the tar sands? The Energy Conversation Canada Needs
For anyone interested in the tar sands “debate” – and this should include all of us as it is really a debate about our collective energy future – you will want to keep an eye on a new investigative reporting series being produced by The Tyee.
Under the general heading of “Canada’s Transition to a Sustainable Energy Economy,” the Tyee has launched today the first of three major projects growing out of a “desire to be of service to the how-to-transition conversation,” beginning with Geoff Dembicki’s “Greening the Oil Sands.” This will be followed by a report on how Norway has managed its fossil fuel windfall (Mitchell Anderson) and an inquiry into the challenges and opportunities Canada faces in evolving from a fossil-fuel based society (Andrew Nikiforuk).
