LNG: The Business Case and Global Environmental Picture, Oct 30

October 30, 2013

The Province of BC is forging ahead with ambitious plans to develop the liquefied natural gas (LNG) extraction and shipping industry within a competitive world marketplace. While a previous Carbon Talk explored the risk and reward of LNG development, this panel will examine if the natural gas business case is strong enough to be the driving force of the BC economy. How does that business case hold up under the scrutiny of high environmental expectations from the BC public? Join us to hear from our panelists.

About the Panelists:

Tom Syer - Vice President of Policy and Communications, BC Business Council

Kathryn Harrison - Professor of Political Science, UBC

Geoff Morrison - Manager, British Columbia Operations, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers

Join Carbon Talks for a lively dialogue on resiliency, adaptation and discover how we can beautify our communities even in the face of climate change challenges.
