Global energy crisis the result of ‘underinvestment': Enbridge CEO

"...Enbridge, which Monaco said views itself as a “bridge” to a cleaner energy future, has been transitioning its asset mix toward lower-carbon sources of energy for several years. It has significantly expanded its natural gas business and connections to LNG markets, built up a renewables business, and is now investing in hydrogen, renewable natural gas, and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)..."

Sask. Caucus troubled by Trudeau’s cabinet appointment

"...Wilkinson established his anti-Saskatchewan bona-fides last Parliament while serving as Trudeau’s Environment Minister by rejecting the province’s greenhouse gas reduction program just prior to the election. His rejection of major resource development projects throughout the prairies like Tek Resources and natural gas carbon capture are visible examples of his disdain for resource development and job growth..."

BLOG: Trudeau focuses on virtue-signalling instead of real solutions

"...Prime Minister Trudeau made a global splash at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow this week by announcing that Canada would immediately impose a greenhouse gas emissions cap on oil and gas producers and reduce that cap incrementally to force a transition away from fossil fuels. Like so many of the Trudeau government’s policies, little thought was given to the economic costs of the decision or its practical implications for the country. The economic implications of the decision are plain to see..."

Why ex-Greenpeace activist and new environment minister Steven Guilbeault could be problematic for Canadians: Exner-Pirot on Glo

"..."The person who has a history of ideological opposition to resource extraction to oil and gas and does not look like a pragmatic, constructive partner for Canada's largest industry. This comes at a time where we're facing an energy crisis and a time where we're going to need to quintuple mining globally in order to meet the demands of the green transformation," notes Exner-Pirot. "And all of that feels very much at risk when this is the person that's the minister..."

Bad government policies create energy crisis: op-ed

"...With skyrocketing prices in Europe and to a lesser extent North America, commentators are openly talking of a looming energy crisis. Yet unlike an earthquake or asteroid strike, in modern times energy crises are the result of misguided government policy. Especially as delegates head to Glasgow for the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (in its 26th year), it’s critical for the public to recognize that even more onerous restrictions on carbon-based fuels will only make the situation worse..."

How Will Moscow Use Its Energy Leverage Over Europe?

"...Europe is in the throes of an energy crisis. Supplies of natural gas are so tight that prices are up by almost 400 percent since the start of the year. Utilities are switching to power generated from coal and even fuel oil, two of the world’s dirtiest fuels..."

Car owners feeling the burn of rising gas prices

"...He believes that it's a reflection of global trends and that while we might be doing better than a number of other countries that are in the midst of borderline energy crises, prices for not only gasoline, but a number of other related costs will likely continue to climb through the winter..."

International Energy Agency forecasts decline in Canadian oil demand coming

"...If Canada implements the new policies the Liberals have promised — including mandating more electric car sales and capping emissions from oil and gas production — available Canadian oil will fall by 100,000 barrels a day by 2030. And in a net zero policy push — where any greenhouse gases still emitted are captured by 2050 — oil supply will fall even faster.  Globally, the IEA predicts that with existing policies, oil demand will peak around 2030..."

What is the key to B.C. food security?

"...But given all the shocks to the system – a global pandemic that roiled supply chains, a drought that reduced North American crop yields this year, an energy crisis that is pushing up fuel costs and a shortage of truck drivers, the food supply system has proven remarkably resilient, said James Vercammen, an expert in food and agriculture at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business..."

Is Europe’s Energy Crisis a Preview of America’s?

"...The first energy crisis in decades has come as a shock to many, who seem to have forgotten how energy insecurity reverberates onto every major sphere of public life: the economy, national security, the environment, and public health. As the world’s most traded good, energy is involved in everything we buy and consume, so energy prices and shortages significantly impact economic growth. Because energy is the most important input in manufacturing, stable prices and supplies are key to economic competitiveness..."

A Just Transition Means Protecting the Most Vulnerable from the Coming Energy Crisis: Heather Exner-Pirot for Inside Policy Ma

"...Any just transition should probably consider the impacts to the billions of people who rely on imported oil and gas to provide their food, transportation, heat and power. Fortunately, Canada is uniquely blessed with ample energy supplies, from oil and gas to uranium and hydroelectricity. We are unlikely to suffer as much as the many developing nations who lack adequate domestic energy supplies..."
