In the days following the election that will put Donald Trump in the White House, media coverage about the prospects for America’s clean energy sector read like an obituary. After all, President-elect Trump had promised to resurrect the moribund American coal industry—putting an end to the “war on coal”—and he had little good to say…

Survey also shows most Canadians support a transition from fossil fuel reliance as quickly as possible, including half in Alberta OTTAWA—New public opinion research found that roughly 20 million Canadian adults (69 per cent) heard something about the recent First Ministers’ Meeting on climate—including 9 million who heard either a lot or a fair bit…

It’s a whole new ballgame for climate action and clean growth in Canada. The climate deal struck late Friday in Ottawa committed premiers and the prime minister to work together to hit our country’s emission targets.

The 150-year history of Confederation is but a speck of time compared to the lifespan of planet earth. Birthdays are a good time to look back, but an even better time to look forward. As Canadians, we sometimes downplay what we have accomplished and underestimate what we can do next. But let’s step outside our…

The true measure of any climate plan can be boiled down to one question: how well does it reduce carbon pollution? Apply this test to the B.C. Climate Leadership Plan, which involved more than 15 months of consultation before its August release, and the answer is clear: the plan fails. Recently, Clean Energy Canada worked…

We look forward to hearing from you.
