I am one of the environmentalists who doesn’t want more pipelines. As Joshua Buck points out, betting on a future of increasing demand for fossil fuels is betting on a deadly future for most higher life forms on earth.The dialogue by opinion pieces can be painful, tending to foster entrenched positions.

Calgary could be producing 52 per cent per cent more solar energy than Berlin.Jan Slakov, Saltspring Island
