“Newly minted federal finance minister Chrystia Freeland wants to “Build Back Better.” As Albertans we want to build Alberta back better. What does this mean for Alberta oil?”
You may have caught our editorial in the Globe & Mail this weekend, but even if you didn’t, join us (David, Ed, and Sara) for a follow-up conversation on the fourth installment of Energy vs Climate.
Our op-ed clearly touched a nerve, garnering 800+ comments. We will tackle some of the points we raised in the op-ed, including the role of the oil sands in the economic future of the province, COVID-19 as a factor in peak oil, the dynamics of oil markets, and the risks in focusing on net zero oil moonshots. We will debate some of the feedback we’ve received from a range of sources and take viewer questions.
