Emerging Energy and Environmental Opportunities and Challenges in Alberta
April 13, 2006 :: Marlo Raynolds
The economic wealth for Albertans associated with energy development is apparent, but what are the environmental costs for us now and into the future? Huge economic opportunity lies in the tar sands and in export of energy from the province but there are major land, water and air quality issues. How do we integrate provincial policies regarding energy development and environmental protection? Are we looking beyond the Kyoto Protocol, which ends in two years, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?
