Report: "The Clean Energy Future: Protecting the Climate, Creating Jobs and Saving Money" shows that the United States can reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 — while adding half-a-million jobs and saving Americans billions of dollars on their electrical, heating, and transportation costs. Joe Uehlein of the Labor Network for Sustainability says, “This report is good news for American workers. Protecting the climate has often been portrayed as a threat to American workers’ jobs and the U.S. economy. But this report shows that a clean energy future will produce more jobs than “business as usual” with fossil fuels.”
Report: The pipelines exporting tar sands out of Alberta are almost full, according to new analysis by Oil Change International. Without the construction of major pipelines, such as Energy East, Kinder Morgan or Keystone XL, there will be no room for further growth in tar sands extraction and tens of billions of metric tonnes of carbon will be kept in the ground. This would be a significant step towards a safer climate.

Visual: Remember the classic animation that played when CBC TV transmissions began in the morning and signed-off at night? The original animation showed a Canada with sparkling lakes, ancient forests, rugged mountains and wild coastlines. After nine years of Harper government, this remake shows a Canada dominated by pipelines, oil spills and seismic blasting in the Arctic.
Report: In this 2015 climate policy report card, I evaluate the Canadian government’s emission commitments and policy actions. In the nine years since its promise to reduce Canadian emissions 20% by 2020 and 65% by 2050, the Canadian government has implemented virtually no polices that would materially reduce emissions. The 2020 target is now unachievable without great harm to the Canadian economy. And this may also be the case for the 2050 target, which would require an almost complete transformation of the Canadian energy system in the remaining 35 years.
