It is perfectly possible to talk about energy and climate in the same breath. It is not a tussle between good and bad. Whether you're government, a oil major, an advocate, a journalist or an observer, it's about doing the right things, in the right way, and sooner rather than later.
“It was not necessary to be quite so critical in the way they described our energy product."

British Columbia currently faces a perfect storm of fossil fuel extraction and export projects colliding with the realities of a changing climate and rising inequality. Recent years have also been a time that has seen the emergence of mass social movements that are re-defining societies and challenging some of the most entrenched powers on our planet. From the Arab Spring to Idle No More, we are witnessing the rebirth of people power.
