Last month, Ottawa officially kicked off work on a national strategy for zero-emission cars. And this week, a thoughtful report from Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission said that offering incentives to Canadians who buy those cars doesn’t make much sense. Our take? A national game plan to get more electric vehicles (EVs) on Canada’s roads is essential,…

For Canadian drivers, it’s easy to think electric vehicles aren’t going mainstream anytime soon—especially if your only point of reference is the type of cars you see when you’re stuck in traffic. But it’s a different story here in China, where we’re attending the Clean Energy Ministerial this week. By the end of last year,…

As you might expect, on Day 1 of the Clean Energy Ministerial gathering in Beijing, the hallways were filled with discussions about U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. What, if any, impact would this have on the global transition to clean energy? The answer, both in the…

After kicking the can down the road multiple times before making a decision, today U.S. President Donald Trump followed through on his campaign promise to remove the United States from the Paris climate agreement. Trump’s indifference—or outright skepticism—about climate change is unequivocally negative for the environment. But that would remain true whether or not the…

If you want proof that carbon pricing is both an environmental and economic solution, take a walk through the headquarters of Markham-based Pond Technologies. What you’ll find are containers and tanks bubbling green with algae that efficiently suck up greenhouse-gas emissions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The company has spent years perfecting the process of…

Let’s start with a prediction: Any move Ottawa makes toward a price on carbon pollution will be greeted with a chorus of concerns about competitiveness. Expect to hear that companies will be at risk. That some will pull up stakes and move to jurisdictions where they can pollute more. And that we’ll all be poorer…

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and premiers in Vancouver, March 3, 2016

Even the very best get it wrong sometimes. That’s the only explanation we’ve got for a recent column from environmentalist Bill McKibben. In it, McKibben calls Justin Trudeau a “stunning hypocrite” on climate change whose actions make him a “brother” to climate sceptic Donald Trump. Most of the time, McKibben is a brilliant writer and…

Looking for a job in clean technology? They must be easy to spot, with more than 850 firms nationally employing more Canadians than the forestry, pharmaceutical, or medical device industries. In fact, there are more Canadian cleantech companies than aerospace (700) or automotive (450) firms. But would you recognize a clean technology job if you…

We look forward to hearing from you.
