Canada’s oil and gas workers don’t need a forced ‘just transition’

The sector will be critical to Canada, and the world, for decades to come

Canada’s oil and gas workers don’t need a forced ‘just transition’The idea of the need for a “just transition” for Canadian oil and gas workers is based on the false narrative that global demand is now decreasing and, therefore, Canada’s industry will no longer be profitable or essential in the very near future. This is not true. Oil and gas will continue to be critical…

How much, how fast: Research sheds new light on carbon storage

Groundbreaking work could help industry understand how to store carbon safely over the long term

Western Canada continues to get shafted by Trudeau

Oil tankers off West coast are bad but drilling for oil off Newfoundland's coast is OK

Western Canada continues to get shafted by TrudeauWe all know politics is the art of the possible. Perfection isn’t for the real world. We aren’t surprised when tradeoffs and the occasional compromise creep into government policies. Nor do we require elected members of government, even at the ministerial level, to be experts in their portfolio areas, although we expect them to avail…

Canada’s energy strategy defies stark global realities

Western leaders are acting in ways that make your cringe: It's like watching an out-of-control teen at their first party

Canada’s energy strategy defies stark global realitiesPeople have been asking for my thoughts on the recently announced federal climate plan. I shrug. I ask them what their thoughts are on the Iowa State Fair Hog Calling Regulations. I’m indifferent. I know I should care, but what’s the point?

Federal oil and gas emissions plan will hurt Canadians 

Canada is the solution to reliable, affordable, responsible energy security

Federal oil and gas emissions plan will hurt Canadians The federal government’s plan to require a 42 per cent reduction in emissions from Canada’s oil and gas sector by 2030 is based on assumptions divorced from reality and will ultimately hurt Canadians. Setting aggressive targets to cap and reduce the sector’s pollution – while no other major producing nation does the same – is…
