Share: 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…

Share: One of B.C.’s most effective climate policies is so affordable that most British Columbians don’t even realize it exists. What’s more, B.C. is the only province in Canada currently employing it. Or rather, it was. A clean fuel standard, which the federal government announced it will be expanding and implementing nationwide, ensures every litre…

Share: VANCOUVER—Jeremy Moorhouse, senior analyst at Clean Energy Canada, made the following statement in response to today’s announcement that the Woodfibre LNG facility will run on electricity: “Designing this facility to run on electricity will reduce on-site carbon pollution by up to 80 per cent. By using electricity instead of natural gas, Woodfibre has set the…

Share: Two weeks ago, Ontario took the wraps off its Climate Leadership Plan and the crowd went wild. Okay, so perhaps we’re overstating things—but watchdog groups, industry and pundits widely praised Ontario’s policies that are expected to reduce carbon pollution substantially while creating jobs and clearing the air. Just days before that, the Government of…

Share: During the next few months, shipment after shipment of enormous steel tubes and fibreglass blades will snake from the port of Stewart, B.C., towards a construction site 33 kilometres north of Tumbler Ridge. These pieces will be assembled into turbines at the Meikle Wind energy project, British Columbia’s largest wind farm. The project will…

Share: Every time you fill your vehicle’s tank, a portion of the fuel you buy comes from plants, not fossil fuels. That’s because, since 2005, provincial and federal policies in Canada have required gasoline and diesel fuel to include some liquid biofuel. Our latest research shows those policies are working. Biofuels adoption is up—accounting for…

Share: “Climate change is a global issue, and the Premier has made it clear that B.C. will remain a climate action leader,” Minister of Finance Michael de Jong said this week in his budget speech. Just don’t look to the 2016 budget to back up that aspiration—there’s little “climate action” to speak of. It’s a…

Share: British Columbians have another opportunity to shape the province’s climate action priorities. The B.C. government has just released a consultation guide and is looking for feedback on it before releasing a more detailed survey in the coming weeks. The consultation period runs until March 25. It’s clear that British Columbians across the province stand…

Share: Smart policy, not the Business Council of British Columbia’s (BCBC) plan of inaction, is how B.C. can drive down carbon pollution while maintaining the competitiveness of the province’s export industries. In BCBC’s critique of our latest report, A Clean Economy and Jobs Plan for British Columbia, BCBC argues there are three main reasons the…

Share: British Columbia is considering its next steps to fight climate change, and increasing the carbon tax is one of the options on the table. B.C.’s carbon pollution is on the rise. To get back on track to reducing carbon pollution, the government will need to consider new tools (like clean vehicle standards), and strengthen…

Share: British Columbia’s Ministry of Energy and Mines yesterday confirmed that it would leave the province’s Renewable and Low Carbon Fuel Requirements Regulation unchanged in the wake of a year-long review. The regulation specifies the amounts by which the overall carbon intensity of motor fuels must decline by the year 2020, and prescribes the required…

We look forward to hearing from you.
