Kinder Morgan

Kinder Morgan’s sustainable seafood dinner disrupted.

Feature

January 27th 2015

Visual: This action of how activists punked Kinder Morgan executives at dinner this weekend is AMAZING. Please watch the video! Note how much more powerful the action was because it was led by front line community leaders, with a message of how the tar sands impacts their health and human rights, rather than it being another action about climate / environmental values on their own. More powerful + less easy to dismiss. This kind of work is the future of the movement.

Energy East

Energy East: The Great Canadian Migration

January 16th 2015

Visual: Working to protect the environment from devastating pollution can be heavy stuff. With our latest video on the risks of the Energy East pipeline, we thought we’d try to lighten things up a bit by asking: What would happen if Britain’s greatest nature explorer did a nature documentary on the migration of oil?

VIDEO: 2014 was the ‘Year of the Win’

Feature

January 5th 2015

Visual: 2014 was a landmark year for tar sands, climate and First Nations activists in Canada and the United States. Dozens of major actions were organized by communities, giant mines were cancelled due to pipeline constraints, and the national conversation about climate and energy shifted in both Canada and the U.S. Because of your work, the tides began to turn in 2014. We’re now winning the fight. Here's why.

Enbridge Northern Gateway

Enbridge Northern Gateway’s Year in Review: Opposition shows strength in numbers

December 16th 2014

Visual: This week, groups are marking the anniversary of the Joint Review Panel’s recommendation to approve Enbridge’s controversial pipeline and tanker project with a retrospective index. “One year after the hearings concluded, the opposition to Enbridge’s pipeline and tankers is as strong as ever,” said Gerald Amos of the Friends of Wild Salmon. “Enbridge has failed to win social licence for the project or meet any of its 209 conditions, and British Columbians and First Nations are pulling together to stop the project in the courts.”

Oil by rail

VIDEO - Boom: North America’s Explosive Oil-by-Rail Problem

December 8th 2014

Visual: The Weather Channel and InsideClimate News teamed up to investigate the problem of exploding railcars in "Boom: America's Explosive Oil-by-Rail Problem." The documentary accompanies an investigation by reporters Marcus Stern and Sebastian Jones, who explain why federal regulations to protect the public have been stalled by the railroads and the oil industry.

Energy East

Oilsands expansion, emissions and the Energy East pipeline

Erin Flanagan | Pembina Institute - December 4th 2014

Publication: The Pembina Institute has just published a new briefing note on the climate impacts of the Energy East pipeline and the link between pipelines, market access and greenhouse gas This backgrounder also dives in to the regulatory context in Alberta to make the case that Alberta's current carbon policy has done little to impact rising emissions in the oilsands. This analysis will be useful as we continue to push Ontario and Quebec on their fourth condition for the pipeline – specifically around the inclusion of "upstream" emissions in their provincial reviews.
