Uncertainty over new rules on renewable energy sources in Alberta as moratorium set to lift Globalnews.ca

"...A recent paper by Kristina Pearson and Sara Hastings-Simon at the University of Calgarys School of Public Policy said increased wind and solar generation can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas power plants, and even out the amount those power plants are dispatched to make up for demand. When all approved projects are built, one-third of all hours could require less than 5,000 MW (megawatts) of firm dispatch, and we would start to see hours where renewable energy will exceed all demand, the paper says. The U of C authors said with the change in dispatch patterns and increase in renewable energy sources, natural gas power plants are an affordable option for balancing variable renewable generation..."

Federal government ratchets up climate propaganda : op-ed

"...In the face of resistance from provinces to its anti-fossil fuel agenda, and having endured several setbacks in the federal courts over some of its signature environmental policies, the Trudeau government has rolled out a new propaganda campaign to build greater support for its climate and energy policies. According to the governments new Raising the Bar campaign, manmade climate change has quickly evolved from a future threat to a real-time crisis where were experiencing more wildfires, floods, and droughts that affect our economy, our infrastructure, our health, and our overall well-being. But is this true? Our government, which regularly claims to follow evidence-based policy, doesnt provide much evidence to back up these claimsprobably because there isnt a lot of strong evidence that were seeing dramatic changes in extreme weather events..."
