Canada's economy is based upon resource extraction, but we live in a world with a warming climate. Most of our news and information sources are polarized, spun, and bought. Where we stand as a country about the national energy policy is anyone's guess, but it is our responsibility as citizens to become informed about it.
We will explore the tensions between being "sustainable" and earning money in today's world. Examples from the oil and gas industry will provide focal points. You will learn about topics such as formation fracking, horizontal drilling, pipeline and oil tanker safety, stakeholder inclusion, baseline studies, cradle-to-grave economics, end-game strategies, and the side effects of NIMBY-ism ("not-in-mybackyard" attitudes).
